Klimt – Moser – Gerstl – Kokoschka
The Leopold Museum is home to the largest collection of works by Egon Schiele as well as an equally eminent selection of masterpieces from turn of the century Viennese art. Celebrating the anniversary of the deaths of key figures of Viennese Modernism, the museum will present select works by the main exponents of Viennese Jugendstil (art nouveau) Gustav Klimt and Koloman Moser, as well as by ground-breaking Expressionists Richard Gerstl and Oskar Kokoschka. The exhibition will feature notable works by Gustav Klimt, including Death and Life (1911/15) and On Lake Attersee (1900), as well as Moser’s paintings, such as Venus in the Grotto (1914). The exhibition will also showcase outstanding examples of design from around 1900, including furniture, craftwork and posters, created by the ‘artist of a thousand talents’ and co-founder of the Wiener Werkstätte.
