Exhibition at the Belvedere Castle
Gustav Klimt Exhibition in Vienna
Step into the majestic Belvedere Castle and follow Austrian painting from medieval times up to the 21st century. The highlight of every visit to the Upper Belvedere is “The Kiss” by Gustav Klimt.
Klimt is, without a doubt, one of the biggest names when it comes to Austrian art. He grew up as the son of a gold engraver and worked his way up to the most famous representative of the Viennese Jugendstil movement as well as being the most popular Viennese artist. The majority of his works are exhibited at Belvedere Castle and shouldn’t be missed when spending time in Vienna.
Belvedere – the Vienna Secession
If you are interested in Austrian art, there is so much to see that you will not be able to get around Upper Belvedere. This is where the most important and greatest exhibition of Austrian artists can be found, starting with art from the medieval period. The exhibition’s highlights are the works of the Vienna Secession by Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele. The world-famous “The Kiss” or “Judith and the Head of Holofernes,” build the centre of Klimt’s work, which caused controversy during his lifetime, and wasn’t actually appreciated until many years afterwards.
Use the chilly late autumn days as an opportunity for a city trip to Vienna and don’t miss out on the outstanding art exhibitions. A rainy day is a great opportunity not only for a visit to Belvedere in Vienna but also for visits to the Albertina and the Museum of Art History “Kunsthistorisches Museum”.
