Vienna on the Path to Modernism

National Art Center Tokyo

24 Apr - 5 Aug 2019

This large-scale survey of some 400 works traces the evolution of art in Vienna from the spread of Enlightenment philosophies under the empress Maria Theresia in the late 18th century through to the Viennese Secession and the development of Art Nouveau. Paintings by Klimt and Schiele are on display, alongside decorative arts by Adolf Loos and members of the Wiener Werkstätte. Find out more from the National Art Center Tokyo’s website.
