Gustav Klimt

The Great Masters of Art
Gustav Klimt is the one artist whose name we associate in particular with Viennese Jugendstil and the “Golden Age”. As a sought-after painter of frescoes and the founding president of the Vienna Secession, the portraitist of fashionable ladies and an illustrator of unashamed eroticism, Klimt was both the enfant terrible and the darling of Viennese society.

Beyond Klimt

New Horizons in Central Europe
1918 marked the end of a golden era: it was the year that Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Koloman Moser, and Otto Wagner died. Artistic activity, however, had already freed itself of their influence. Hardly affected by the political disruptions taking place, artists in the countries of the former Austro-Hungarian monarchy were busily productive, driven by a desire for a new start.

Richard Gerstl

The Great Masters of Art
The art academy failed to recognise his talent; he rejected the contemporary art scene in Vienna; and his visionary work was largely neglected during his lifetime: the painter Richard Gerstl (1883–1908), whose creative period lasted for just four intensive years, is regarded today as one of the most important representatives of Austrian Expressionism for his portraits and landscapes.

Europe in Vienna

The Congress of Vienna 1814/1815
From September 1814 to June 1815, Vienna was the undisputed center of Europe. As the Congress of Vienna convened, the city saw an unprecedented gathering of crowned heads and their ambassadors. Among them were a tsar, an emperor, and no fewer than five kings as the leaders of Europe attempted to remake the continent in the wake of the Napoleonic wars.
