Gary Tinterow, director of The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, talks about the exhibition “Habsburg Splendor: Masterpieces from Vienna’s Imperial Collections,” an extraordinary assemblage of objects collected by Europe’s Habsburg Dynasty, an extended family that wielded power over Europe and other parts of the world for 500 years. The exhibition contains over 90 works of art, including arms and armor, Greek and Roman sculpture, court costumes, carriages, decorative-art objects, tapestries, and an Old Master gallery featuring paintings by Caravaggio, Correggio, Giorgione, Rubens, Tintoretto, Titian, and Velázquez.

“Habsburg Splendor” is on view through September 13 at The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
