75 Years of the Liechtenstein Museum of Fine Arts

This FDC postmarked at Vaduz on  11 March 1976 was issued to mark the 75th Anniversary of The Liechtenstein Museum of Fine Arts which originated in the Liechtenstein State Art Collection, which was founded in 1968. The collections of the museum focus on all forms of art since 1900 on the basis of a thematically oriented collection policy. Its particular emphasis is in the area of sculpture/object/installation.

As a foundation under public law, the Museum of Fine Arts is entirely funded by the State of Liechtenstein. Since the summer of 2000, it has been located in a new building in Vaduz , 85% of which was funded by private donors and presented to the country as a gift for the millennium.

The Museum of Fine Arts presents rotating exhibits of art since 1900 in close connection with the thematic structure of its collections. It practices a new style of presentation of its collections according to the principle of "dialogue", which is presented in a new way for each exhibition. In addition, exhibits from the collections of the Reigning Prince of Liechtenstein are presented continuously. Thank you Merja for this fine FDC.
