The Thunder Fountain in the center of the New Market was conceived and named the Providentia Fountain, but it was easier and clearer for city residents to call it by the name of its creator - George Rafael Donner. So, the name Donnerbrunnen was fixed. Similarly, the name New Market did not immediately catch on. This area was called the flour market. Under the power of Maria Theresa, the nudity of the characters was considered offensive. At the initiative of the Commission of Chastity, they were removed in 1773, and the sculptor Johann Martin Fisher was authorized to melt them. However, the sculptures survived in 1801, recognizing their high artistic value, the sculptures were returned to their former place. But already in 1873, the originals were replaced with bronze copies, and the real sculptures adorn the center of the baroque department of the Belvedere gallery. Translated with Google Translate

From Stephansplatz to Albertina and surroundings. My trip in Vienna of Sep 25, 2018.

From Stephansplatz across the ancient Karntrashtrasse to the Albertina Gallery. In Albertina, there was an exhibition of Monet, when the works of this artist were brought from different museums of the world and exhibited together, representing the same places at different times of the year or at different times of the day. And the walk on the square of the old market ended, with the funny story of Mark Twain. Translated with Google Translate
