KLIMT & SCHIELE: EROS AND PSYCHE
Delve into the turn-of-the century Vienna artworld and tour through exhibitions of Klimt and Schiele’s legendary work.
Today the masterpieces of these two artists attract visitors from all over the world, in Vienna as well as at the Neue Galerie in New York, but there are also pop images that accompany our daily life on posters, postcards and calendars. Now, a hundred years later, the works of these visionary artists – between Jugendstil and Expressionism, together with those of the designer and painter Koloman Moser and the architect Otto Wagner, who died in Vienna in 1918.
Inspired by some of the many exhibitions that are about to open on the occasion of the centenary, this must-see film event guides you through the halls of Albertina, Belvedere, Kunsthistorisches, Leopold, Freud and Wien Museum. Join us for a unique, in-depth look at images of extraordinary visual power: going from the enchanting enveloping decorations of Klimt’s works, to the anguished linework of Egon Schiele in his magnetic nudes and in the contorted figures. A must-see for art lovers and fans of Woman in Gold!
