The Neue Galerie is an outstanding museum in NYC that holds Klimt’s portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer as its key masterpiece. Klimt was the leading portraitist in Vienna at the time and his patrons embraced his new revolutionary style which was expressive and decorative at the same time. His most important students are Schiele and Kokoschka who also were portraitists, but also created the most passionate and sensuous work depicting their lovers. All three collaborated with the Vienna Workshop, an organization dedicated to the beautiful modern design of all functional objects and interiors. We will explore some of the outstanding masterpieces, especially those of the young female artists who were especially innovative.

Art Lecture led by Sylvia Meo
