The Kunsthistorisches Museum exhibits the painting 'he Allegory of Painting' of Johannes Vermeer. The painting is famous for being one of Vermeer's favourites and because some believe it displays the painter Vermeer {from the back). There are no self-portrets or portrets known from Vermeer.

After the Nazi invasion of Austria, top Nazi officials including Reichsmarschall Hermann Göring attempted to acquire the painting. It was finally acquired from its then owner, Count Jaromir Czernin by Adolf Hitler for his personal collection.
