Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele and the Viennese modernism
17.04.2018

Visit the exhibition The End of the Golden Times. Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele and the Viennese modernism in the collections of the National Gallery in Prague.

This year will mark the 100th anniversary of death of two major artists of the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries – Gustav Klimt (1862–1918)and Egon Schiele (1890 –1918). The collections of the National Gallery in Prague house the key works by the two artists – the paintings The Virgin and Water Castle by Klimt and the Pregnant Woman and Death, Still Life with FlowersDead City and drawings Seated Nude and Seated Woman with Bent Knees by Schiele. The new display in the permanent exhibition on the fourth floor of the Veletržní Palace will show Klimt’s influence on Schiele and a history of acquisitions of individual artworks, but it will also put them in a context of the work by their well-known and half-forgotten contemporaries and followers on the Viennese art scene, such as Josef Hoffmann (1870–1956), Emil Orlik (1870–1932), Alfred Kubin (1877–1959), Carl Otto Czeschka (1878–1960), Richard Teschner (1879–1948), Oskar Kokoschka (1886–1980) and Max Oppenheimer (1885– 1954).
