Exhibition 150 years of Gustav Klimt at Upper Belvedere in Vienna - from 13 July 2013 to 6 January 2013
The exhibition "Masterpieces in Focus: 150 years of Gustav Klimt" in the Upper Belvedere is a very special presentation of the museum's entire stock of Klimt's paintings.
The Belvedere owns the world's largest collection of paintings by Gustav Klimt, including the world-famous painting "The Kiss". However, the exhibition "150 years of Gustav Klimt" is not intended to deal with relationships concerning style or the history of art. Rather, it is intended to be about Klimt's work itself, about the statement that every single one of his main works - whether "Fritza Riedler" or "Judith I", for example - can convey to the observer. In addition, the show discusses every single year of Klimt's lifetime. Another focal point therefore lies on the as yet little considered history of how Klimt and his works were received. Over the course of 150 years, Klimt has become a phenomenon in terms of not only art science, but also history. Also to be seen are the two Klimt masterpieces "Sunflower" and "Family", which the Belvedere acquired in March 2012 from the estate of art collector Peter Parzer.
