Die Schatzkunst der Renaissance und des Barock ist ein weitgehend in Vergessenheit geratener Bestandteil der europäischen Kunstgeschichte.
The Renaissance and Baroque Treasury Art is an almost forgotten element of the european history of Art.
Treasury Art is a purposeless art. While the pieces might pretend to be of use, usually they were meant only for the trained eye or the touching hand of the royal collector. Works of treasury art are often complex objects made from exotic and precious material; but their value is also a constant threat to their existence.
The nature and appearance of treasury art from the Renaissance until the late Baroque periods can be clearly seen in major works of European culture at the Green Vault’s collection. This book presents more than 120 precious objects which demonstrate the splendor of the largest surviving treasury. They can be seen in a modern presentation in the Neues Grünes Gewölbe in Dresden.
