Vienna represented in the exhibition In the time of Klimt at the Pinacothèque in Paris – from 12 February to 21 June 2015


The Vienna Secession

The Pinacothèque de Paris, in partnership with Arthemisia Group and 24 ORE Cultura, wishes to examine once again an essential aspect of Art Nouveau, which was developed in Vienna at the start of the 20th century under the name Secession. Gustav Klimt's part in the emerging of that movement is a major one. The artist's talent and brio, from his precocious start to his excessive decorative effects, where gildings and the emerging expressionism are dominant, are the foundations of a new period, which flowered in Vienna at the turn of the century. That artistic movement is, in fact, at the origin of the birth, a few years later, of one of the major currents in modern art, Expressionism, which was the theme of an exhibition in the museum in 2011.

The exhibition shows over 180 works taken from the collections of the Belvedere museum in Vienna, as well as from private collections. The curatorship of the exhibition is ensured by Alfred Weidinger, curator of the Belvedere museum in Vienna.

Exhibition Wally Neuzil at the Leopold Museum in Vienna – from 27 February to 1st June 2015


Her Life with Egon Schiele

The painting “Wally”, housed by the Vienna Leopold Museum, is among the most well-known works by Egon Schiele. The upcoming exhibition at the Leopold Museum seeks to uncover the person behind the portrait, Walburga “Wally” Neuzil (1894-1917), approaching her through artworks, autographs, photographs and documents. Featured in the presentation will be eminent paintings by Schiele, such as “Death and the Maiden”, an important loan from the Belvedere, as well as drawings and watercolors by Schiele for which Wally acted as a model. The exhibition comprises works from the Leopold Museum, the Leopold Private Collection as well as loans from Austrian and international collections.

The exhibition examines the stages of Wally’s life, her professions, from model to nurse, and tells the tale of a woman’s fate in fin-de-siècle Vienna, between self-sacrifice and self-fulfillment, between a life without taboos and profound humanity.

Exhibition Lechner, A Creative Genius at the Museum of Applied Arts in Budapest – from 19 November 2014 to 31 May 2015


In 2014 the Museum commemorate the 100th anniversary of the death of Ödön Lechner (1845–1914), one of the greatest Hungarian architects and one of the original geniuses of the European architectural scene at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. To mark this anniversary, the Institute of Art History of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and the Museum of Applied Arts in Budapest are jointly organizing an international conference and an exhibition.

This exhibition presents the whole scope of the work of the architect Ödön Lechner. Special attention is paid to five major works, nominated for UNESCO World Heritage Site status: the Kecskemét City Hall, the parish church of Budapest-Kőbánya, the Museum of Applied Arts, the Institute of Geology, and the Postal Savings Bank. Visitors can familiarise themselves with these through the architect’s original plans and drawings, as well as period and modern photographs. Working drawings of the ornaments so crucial to Lechner’s work, the publications which inspired him, and examples of the Zsolnay ceramic in which they were realized are also presented. One of the rooms evokes the world of the Japan Coffee House, Lechner’s second home, another acommodates a panoramic movie of his major works.
