Stadtpalais Daun-Kinsky, Vienna

This townhouse has a distinguished appearance, with a richly decorated façade. The pilasters of the slightly projecting central elevation re-emerge in the lower third, where they are coarsely fluted. The window pediments are varied on the upper floor - some are elegant segments and others are ogee arches. Above an upper mezzanine floor a graceful balustrade is crowned with classical figures on lofty pedestals.

The picture shows the main front of the palace.
