Vienna Media News 05/2012 Vienna’s art dealers celebrate Klimt

It's not just Vienna's museums that will be celebrating this major Gustav Klimt milestone with special exhibitions during the Klimt anniversary year. A nine-strong group of the city's leading art dealers and gallery owners have joined forces to explore and shed light on the myriad traces that Klimt left in his home city. From March to December 2012 the individual galleries will be mounting exhibitions covering different aspects of his work.

The idea is not just to look at Klimt's oeuvre in isolation, but to place it in its socio-political context and determine its influence on artistic output during the Wiener Moderne, or Viennese Modern Age. Led by Gustav Klimt, the Viennese Secession movement and the Wiener Werkstätte came to symbolize an era, which would have a profound impact on artistic developments far beyond Austria's boarders and to this day is widely referred to as the Golden Age.
