Published in 1907, this erotic compilation represents a perfect pairing of Klimt’s risqué drawings with Josef Hoffmann’s Wiener Werkstätte design, arguably resulting in European Jugendstil’s most beautiful book. One particular focus of the exhibition is to compare the red- and black-figure Attic vases dating from the fifth century with Klimt’s linear art. Although separated by over two millennia, these reveal surprising correlations, unveiling new perspectives on how the greatest artist of Viennese Jugendstil appreciated antiquity.
The exhibition is a cooperation with the Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna.
