Hermes villa, Vienna.

The Hermes Villa was commissioned by the Viennese Emperor Franz Joseph as a retreat for the Empress Elisabeth. Built between 1882 and 1886, it was considered one of the most outstanding examples of villa architecture of the late romantic period.

The villa was to take its name from the statue of Hermes which stood in the grounds.
