Vienna 1900. Birth of Modernism

The Leopold Museum’s collection



ISBN: 9783960985976 Category:


The new presentation of the Leopold Museum’s collection highlights the splendour and wealth of artistic achievements of an era shaped by the emergence of the Secessionists, the collapse of the Habsburg Monarchy and the deaths of eminent artists of Viennese Modernism, including Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Koloman Moser and Otto Wagner. Like the exhibition, the accompanying 560-page publication also aims to convey a sense of the character of this time and of the vibrant atmosphere in the metropolis of Vienna.

Twelve scientific essays by renowned experts illustrate the historical aspects and biographies of the era’s eminent protagonists whose fruitful synergy provided the basis for Vienna’s unique cultural life around the turn of the century. A comprehensive appendix of illustrations shows the highlights of the Leopold Collection presented in the exhibition as well as important external loans.
