Photographer's Note

Most Habsburg emperors liked to build monuments to themselves (the Imperial equivalent of the selfie), but the one honouring the reign of Empress Maria Theresa is an exception. It was unveiled in 1888, under the rule of one of her successors, Franz Joseph.
The late 19th century was a time of great construction works in Vienna as architects and planners filled the space freed up by the removal of the city fortifications.
The area housing the Kunsthistorisches and Naturhistorisches museums formed one of the focal points for development. The two buildings face each other across Maria-Theresien-Platz (Maria-Theresa square), a square notable for the huge monument at its centre.
Unveiled in 1888, the monument pays tribute to the reign of Empress Maria Theresa (1717-1780), who inherited the Habsburg lands in a fairly precarious position and turned them into something rather more successful.At the time, construction work on the museums still continued, leading one satirical paper to note:
