Elena Luksch-Makowsky: Silver Age and Secession

Upper Belvedere, Vienna

24 Sep 2020 - 10 Jan 2021

Elena Luksch-Makowsky trained in St Petersburg with the realist master Ilya Repin, but made her name in Vienna with the Secessionists and the Wiener Werkstätte. This show of her paintings, prints and sculptures focuses on the role that this often over-looked artist played in forging connections between the Austrian avant-garde and Russia.
