The extensive holdings of the Graphic Collection with its approximately 40,000 drawings, 100,000 prints, and 20,000 photographs mirrors the teaching activities of Vienna's Academy of Fine Arts throughout more than three hundred years. Thanks to the generous support granted by the Gesellschaft der Freunde der bildenden Künste, about 700 contemporary works by 170 artists could be added to the Graphic Collection since 1997. The acquisition funds made available each year are earmarked for young Austrian art and particularly for works by graduates from the Academy.

It is the wide variety of artistic means of expression and methods that makes the body of recent acquisitions so fascinating. Works on paper such as hand drawings, prints, photographs, and works based on new technologies document the enormous development in these fields within the last fifteen years and testify to the graduates' careers in the sphere of art.

The new acquisitions are presented to the public in the form of a selection for the first time.
