The exhibition "Masterpieces in Focus: 150 years of Gustav Klimt" in the Upper Belvedere is a very special presentation of the museum's entire stock of Klimt's paintings.

 Judith I, 1901
 Sunflower (section), around 1907

The Belvedere owns the world's largest collection of paintings by Gustav Klimt, including the world-famous painting "The Kiss". However, the exhibition "150 years of Gustav Klimt" is not intended to deal with relationships concerning style or the history of art. Rather, it is intended to be about Klimt's work itself, about the statement that every single one of his main works - whether "Fritza Riedler" or "Judith I", for example - can convey to the observer.

In addition, the show discusses every single year of Klimt's lifetime. Another focal point therefore lies on the as yet little considered history of how Klimt and his works were received. Over the course of 150 years, Klimt has become a phenomenon in terms of not only art science, but also history.

Also to be seen are the two Klimt masterpieces "Sunflower" and "Family", which the Belvedere acquired in March 2012 from the estate of art collector Peter Parzer.

With the help of world-famous paintings and Gustav Klimt’s travel correspondence, the Leopold Museum casts a glance at Klimt as a private individual.

Bohemia, Istria, Romania, Italy, Germany, Belgium, England, France, Spain as well as the region of the Salzkammergut and the town of Gastein in Austria were on his itinerary. The museum has not only some of Klimt's main works (e.g. "Death and Life"), but also over 100 drawings by Gustav Klimt. A large part of the estate of Emilie Flöge, with hundreds of post cards, photos and letters, which Klimt wrote to his life companion over almost two decades, is also in the possession of the museum. It also includes art cards of the Wiener Werkstätte, telegrams and numerous pieces of correspondence, which Klimt set to his family and friends in Vienna while on his travels.

The exhibition "Klimt: Up Close and Personal" confronts Klimt's paintings with his post cards. In doing so, the museum directs attention onto the artist's private life and aims to clear away the clichés and myths. Twenty selected original quotes on the walls give an insight into Klimt's artistic understanding. The exhibition addresses Klimt's way of working, his relationship with collectors and patrons as well as his illegitimate children.

The show is supplemented by numerous historic photographs, which show Klimt in a relaxed atmosphere in his private life, in his typical artist's smock on the shore of a lake or on the search for suitable motifs for his paintings. The painter's private side is also brought to the fore with the reconstruction of Klimt's studio.

Gustav Klimt’s Beethoven Fries can be viewed at the Vienna Secession. During the Klimt Year there will be two contemporary art installations thematizing the world-famous work of art.

 
The artist Gerwald Rockenschaub develops a platform that makes it possible to view the Beethoven Frieze at eye-level (three to five meters up) until 13 January 2013. Klimt's Fries and Rockenschaub's platform should be considered independent works of art that play off each other. For Rockenschaub, the platform at the Secession is yet another step in a group of pieces that he has been developing since the late 1980s where, with the help of pedestals, benches, curtains and dividing walls, he directs visitors through the exhibition room and changes their forms of perception.

In the frieze room of the Secession from February 2013, a sound installation by Scottish artist Susan Philipsz can be heard, which deals with the 34 meter-long work.

The Beethoven Fries was one of the main pieces in the great Beethoven Exhibition that was held at the Secession in 1902. Because of its eroticism and drastic depictions the Fries also provoked strong criticism, in addition to the admiration.

As only a limited number of visitors are allowed to view the frieze at a time, there may be long waiting times. Groups (max. 25 people) at the top of each hour (registration: Dit e-mailadres wordt beveiligd tegen spambots. JavaScript dient ingeschakeld te zijn om het te bekijken.).

The "Gustav Klimt and the Künstlerhaus" exhibition uses documents, letters and photographs from the Künstlerhaus archive to explain many of the artistic and biographical milestones in the work of Gustav Klimt.

Gustav Klimt was a highly active member of the Künstlerhaus - one of the most influential artists' associations in Central Europe - from 1891-1897. Through his membership of the Künstlerhaus, Klimt came into contact with numerous influential figures and was appointed to various committees for public contracts, such as the one overseeing the interior design and decoration of the City Hall.

It was at the Künstlerhaus that Gustav Klimt made the acquain­tance of Nikolaus Dumba, a major patron of the Ringstrasse, for whom he completed a number of commissions. He also participated in numerous annual exhibitions. In 1890 Klimt experienced his first major success when his picture "Inside the Old Court Theater" was awarded the Emporer's extremely generous inaugural prize. In 1897 Klimt left the association with 18 of his contemporaries in protest at the academic dogma being preached by the Künstlerhaus.

Exhibitions continued to be dedicated to Klimt after his death - in 1943 a major Gustav Klimt show, which drew in excess of 24,000 visitors, was held at the Secession to mark the 25th anniversary of his death and his 80th birthday. Klimt's art took pride of place at the 1985 exhibition "Dream and Reality", hosted by the Wien Museum at the Künstlerhaus. An interesting and little-known fact is that Klimt's illegitimate son, the film director Gustav Ucicky (1899-1961), was also a member of the Künstlerhaus artists' association.

Gustav Klimt’s famous and rarely exhibited painting "Nuda Veritas", created in 1899, was bequeathed to the Austrian Theater Museum as part of the estate of the Austrian author, dramatist, and theater and literary critic Hermann Bahr (1863–1934).

The Friedrich Schiller quotation inscribed above "The Naked Truth" is a statement advocating an uncompromising artistic truthfulness, which encapsulates the ethos of the Secession movement. As a close friend of the artist, Bahr had been able to acquired the "Nuda Veritas" at a discounted price. The picture represents the fraught relationships between art, critics, and the general public.

Hermann Bahr played a decisive role in publicizing the Secessionist movement from the outset. In 1902 he responded to the storm of controversy surrounding Klimt's works, and in particular the scandal over the faculty pictures, with his book "Against Klimt", a collection of writings vilifying Klimt and the art world in general.

The exhibition at the Austrian Theater Museum examines the following questions: What inspires Klimt to create his allegories? Which artistic and li­te­rary traditions come together in the different elements of this striking image? The exhibition aims to demonstrate how the outrage, criticism and enthusiasm that greeted the Avant Garde movement in Vienna around 1900 set the tone for how the early modernist works were received. It also aims to show how enlightening these controversies can be for our present times.
