The great antechamber of the palace in Moschen

family von Tiele-Winckler
Creators of the collection:

In 1866 the palace in Moschen was purchased by count Hubert von Tiele-Winckler. 30 years later the residence was ruined by fire. It was grandly restored by his son Franz. The interiors, decorated with neo-Renaissance ceilings and wall panelling, were adorned with works of art acquired by the owner in Italy, among others. A large room with glazed ceiling was designed specially for a gallery of paintings and tapestries.

Duration of this collection in Silesia: end of 19th century - 1945
Description of the collection:

Among many works of art exhibited in Moschen, including the family portraits, worth noting was a cycle of paintings by Gaetano Zompini. "Marvelous canvases of Zompini (one must know that the paintings were exported from Venice) were adorning all walls of the greatest room of piano nobile of the palace located next to San Salvator in Bembo street (under number 4780), which used to belong to Venetian patricians named Zinelli.[…] In 1914 they were purchased by count Tiele-Winkler, who commissioned the design of a special room, similar to the one in Venice, so that they can decorate his palace in Moschen in their orginal layout. […] It's such a pity that those paintings left the borders of the country" grieved Zompni's monographist Oreste Battistella in 1930. Also from Italy (from the palace of Malvezzi-Campeggi family in Bologna) a series of arrases by the famous Willem de Kempeneere (based on Bernard van Orley's compositions) were moved to Moschen (they are in Musées Royaux d'Art et d'Histoire in Brussels today).
