New Acquisitions under Hans-Adam II of Liechtenstein
New Acquisitions under Hans-Adam II of Liechtenstein. The dynamic purchasing policy of the regnant Prince Hans-Adam II of Liechtenstein continues the centuries of collecting within the princely house to the present day and is constantly augmenting the holdings of the Princely Collections. Prince Hans-Adam II von und zu Liechtenstein possesses one of the world's largest and most important private art collections. Masterpieces of European art spanning five centuries, from the early Renaissance to the Baroque, form the nucleus of this private collection. As patrons and collectors since the 17th century, the Liechtenstein family have continued to keep alive the ideal of princely patronage down the generations to the present day, and the active acquisition policy pursued by the ruling prince has led to more than 700 new objects being acquired for the collection's holdings.
