A Guided Visit to the Exhibition
“Beyond Klimt: New Horizons in Central Europe, 1914-1938”
Saturday, November 17, 2018
The end of WWI and of the Austro-Hungarian Empire coincided with the revival of major developments in the art world. Political and economic shifts led to new ideas and artistic migrations and art networks sprang up all over the place. Artists met up in art centers and international associations and used magazines to communicate across political borders. They believed their artistic identity was more important than their nationality.
Gustav Klimt was an Austrian symbolist painter and one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Secession movement. Klimt is the author of more than 200 paintings, murals, sketches, and other art object. His primary subject was the female body and his works are marked by a frank eroticism. The Woman in Gold movie features one of his works (Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I).
This is a great opportunity to discover the works of Klimt, Josef Capek, Egon Schiele, Oskar Kokoschka, László Moholy-Nagy and 75 other artists whose first ambition was to break with the old styles and shake up the artistic codes.
