Austrian architecture has a history of being highly decorative. Austria has some of Europe's best examples of baroque architecture. This highly decorated style dates back to the 1600s. Through the use of such materials as gold, marble and wood, baroque architects created beautiful buildings that pleased the senses, as well as serving a functional purpose. At the same time, Austrian buildings appealed to man's spiritual nature because they were decorated with paintings and sculptures of religious and mythical figures. Austria also has many churches, palaces and other buildings designed in the rococo style of the 1700s. Rococo is even more decorative that baroque. During the late 1800s and early 1900s, Austrian architecture became more simplified. This new style was characterized by uncluttered lines and flat surfaces. The building featured in this artwork illustrates a simplified, modern style. It is the Internationales Zentrum located in Austria's capital city of Vienna, the United Nations Building, and is also known as "UNO-CITY."

This painting was originally published on the Fleetwood® First Day Cover for the Austria Europa 1987 Modern Art - Architecture stamp issued June 6, 1987.
