Viennese Art In The Leopold Museum: Klimt, Schiele, Kokoschka
Discover the incredible collection of the Leopold Museum with a personal art experience moderator leading the way on this private tour. We will look closely at the works of Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Oskar Kokoschka, & Richard Gerstl — artists who used their works as a medium of self-expression and self-exploration to an ever-increasing extent.
The Leopold Museum in the Museum Quarter has a unique collection of the most insightful, deep and scandalous masterpieces of the Viennese Modernist movement, as well as Austrian Expressionism. This art tour is designed to reveal historic, scientific and biographical factors which defined the way art was created in Vienna, as well as introducing the different ways that art has been approached since the beginning of the 20th century.
We will look closely at different ways Austrian artists chose to answer the diverse challenges of modernity and find out which factors influenced almost all of them, to address provoking themes of sexuality and self-exploration.
