Much of the massive art collection belonging to Hans-Adam II, the reigning Prince of Liechtenstein, is displayed at the Liechtenstein Museum in Vienna. “It has always been a tradition of the family to show our art to the public,” Hans-Adam II told the Art Newspaper in 2004. “World War II forced my father to put it into storage. It is a great pleasure for me, and for the whole family, to show it again.” Hans-Adam owns the LG banking group and has a personal fortune of about $4 billion, according to various published reports. He is believed to be Europe’s wealthiest monarch.
