In late nineteenth-century Imperial Vienna, Gustav Klimt was one of the principal decorative painters of the sumptuous monuments on the Ringstrasse. At the dawn of the new century, he led the Vienna Secession, a movement that sought to break away from academic art. Both famous and contested, Klimt paved the way to modern painting. The gold and decorative motifs that characterise his works are a symbol of this artistic revolution. The immersive exhibition includes the works that typify Klimt’s work and made him so famous—his ‘golden period’, portraits, and landscapes.
