NameAgainst Klimt. The 'Nuda Veritas' and her defender Hermann Bahr
DescriptionGustav Klimt's famous painting "Nuda Veritas" is at the heart of the exhibition "Against Klimt. The 'Nuda Veritas' and her defender Hermann Bahr", which can be seen at the Theater Museum from 10 May to 29 October 2012. The naked truth, an imposing two-meter tall woman, holds a mirror up to the observer. The show will emphasize the importance of the painting in art at the transition from the 19th to the 20th century: The "Nuda Veritas" was owned by the writer Hermann Bahr, whose estate is held by the Theater Museum. Bahr was a friend of Klimt and a great sponsor of the art of his time. He countered the hefty debates surrounding Klimt's works of art with his paper "Gegen Klimt". Bahr's creations will also play an important role in this exhibition. Source:
