Klimt & Schiele: Eros and Psyche recounts the start of the Vienna Secession, a movement of art, literature, and music formed in the late 1890s, in which new ideas were circulated, Freud described the drives of the psyche, and women began to claim their independence. It was a movement that marked a new era outside the confines of academic tradition.

At the heart of Secession were the artist Gustav Klimt and his protégé and dear friend Egon Schiele. This exhibition provides an in-depth examination of images of extraordinary visual power: from the eroticism of Klimt’s mosaic-like works to the anguished and raw work of the young Schiele in his magnetic nudes and contorted figures set against the backdrop of nocturnal Vienna, full of masked balls and dreams imbued with sexuality.
