Gustav Klimt

Leopold Museum | Vienna
Price
€8 - €13
Presentation
This exhibition marking the 100th anniversary of the death of Gustav Klimt, who also passed away in 1918, honors THE protagonist of Viennese Modernism par excellence, who saw the Secession as a venue for the fight for spiritual and artistic modern art.

His highly contested, allegorical Faculty Paintings, which were destroyed during the last days of war in 1945, were seen as a paradigm shift and a credo of a new thematic and formal notion of the fin-de-siècle: spirit and matter, nature and art, as well as Eros and Thanatos constituted the program of his artistic oeuvre. The pictorial works of the avant-gardist Klimt further express a longing for beauty and sensuality.

Along with works from the holdings of the Leopold Museum and the Leopold family’s private collection, the presentation will feature exhibits from the Klimt Foundation, works given to the museum as a permanent loan by a Klimt descendant as well as select international loans from private and institutional collections.

The exhibition retraces Klimt’s artistic evolution from an exponent of late Historicism towards one of the most eminent representatives of Viennese Jugendstil.
Hours

The exhibition is over since the 04/11/2018
