Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele and Oskar Kokoschka – three of the biggest names of the Viennese modern art movement of the 20th century. Besides the obvious connection in nationality and time of practice – they have completely different styles and a unique language that makes them so special. However, living in the same city, during the same time created another very important parallel- the subject matter – Women.

The early twentieth century was strongly marked by an interest in sexuality and the relationship between sexes. The differing opinions made it a big subject matter, one that seemed to be discussed by all the artists and intellectuals.

The Belvedere Palace & Museum is now bringing together a great collection of paintings from these three amazing artists. The exhibition will take you through the different relationships to women that they all had – making clear the individuality of each one when still exploring the same subject.

 

 

The exhibition is attracting hundreds of people and truly getting the attention it deserves as it brings works of art from all the corners in the world, some that are hardly ever seen.

The exhibition will be on until the 28th of February and shouldn’t be missed!
