Gustav Klimt: Vienna – Japan 1900

April 23 (Tue) – July 10 (Wed), 2019

Gustav Klimt: Vienna – Japan 1900 Poster

Gustav Klimt (1862-1918)—a leading figure in Viennese art at the turn of the 20th century. Klimt’s paintings, known for their opulent decorative character and fin-de-siècle eroticism, still today enjoy widespread popularity. This exhibition marking the centennial of the artist’s death will feature some 20 oil paintings by Klimt—the largest display ever to be realized in Japan. They will range from early naturalistic works and foremost “Golden Phase” painting, created after his forming the Viennese Secession, to sensual portraits of women and the landscapes he painted throughout his career. Through these and works by Klimt’s contemporaries in Vienna, Japanese artworks inspirational to his style, and a re-creation of exhibits at Viennese Secession Building—using elaborate reproduction of the wall paintings—viewers will revel in the splendor of fin-de-siècle Viennese art.
