Catalogue Note

Located in the imperial hunting grounds outside of Vienna, the Hermesvilla was built by Emperor Franz Joseph I for his wife, Empress Elisabeth; the couple regularly spent time there between 1887 and Empress Elizabeth's assassination in 1898. Empress Elisabeth's Turnzimmer (gymnasium) was decorated with murals in the Pompeiian style, showing various sports.
