Filled to bursting with Austrian art from the early 20th century, the Leopold Museum has an appropriately contemporary design. Constructed in Vienna’s innovative MuseumsQuartier by design partnership Ortner & Ortner, the museum opened in 2001 and is essentially a gleaming white, limestone cube that contrasts neatly with the flamboyant Baroque architecture of Imperial Vienna.

Named after philanthropist and art collector Rudolf Leopold, who died in 2010, the museum holds around 5,200 works of art; the permanent exhibitions displayed around the vast atrium and open galleries range from masterly silverware and ceramic decorative arts from the Wiener Werkstätte (Vienna Workshops) of 1903–32, to stylish Art Nouveau furniture designed by Kolomon Moser, and some rather brutal portraits by Expressionist Oskar Kokoschkar.

However, the standout pieces in the Leopold’s collections are by two world-famous artists who bring in the crowds in their thousands: portraits swathed in gilt and landscapes by Gustav Klimt – including his peerless Death and Life – and the world’s most important collection of portraits and nudes by the enfant terrible of Austrian Expressionism, Egon Schiele, who was mentored by Rudolf Leopold throughout his career.

Private Tour with an Art Historian of the Leopold Museum: Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele and Viennese Art Nouveau

Private Tour with an Art Historian of the Leopold Museum: Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele and Viennese Art Nouveau

star-5
1
The Leopold Collection includes the most striking and emotional works of Viennese art from the early twentieth century. In this art tour of the museum's collection, we take a look at works by Gustav Klimt, Oskar Kokoschka, Egon Schiele and Richard Gerstel to understand and experience the images of that complex and incredibly interesting era. Gustav Klimt is an artist with a biography full of endless creative pursuits. Each stage of his journey is represented in the collection of the Leopold Museum by distinctive works. We will look at Klimt's early drawings to appreciate his skills as a portrait painter. You will also discover newly discovered details of his biography that offer an unexpected perspective on the artist's much recognisable style. Egon Schiele is a perfect example to illustrate the connection between creativity and the movements of the artist's soul. We will certainly discuss whether it is a coincidence that when the Viennese psychotherapist Sigmund Freud was developing concepts such as "repression", "Oedipus complex" and "acting out", the Viennese artist Schiele painted portraits of blind associates, parodies of famous works by colleagues and paintings of dead mothers. Klim and Schiele are two of the most famous names of the Viennese art scene at the beginning of the 20th century, but we also take a look at the work of their contemporaries Koloman Moser, Max Openheimer and Bronzia Koller-Pinel and you get a detailed insight into the vibrant intellectual life and creative scene in Vienna at the beginning of the 20th century. In this tour of the Leopold Museum you will see how artists' redefinition of the purpose of art led to the birth of new artistic styles and a new idea of what art is.

Private Themed Tour of the Leopold Museum with an Art Historian:

Private Themed Tour of the Leopold Museum with an Art Historian: "All You Wanted to Know About Egon Schiele but Were Afraid to Ask"

The Leopold Museum in the Museum Quarter has the largest collection of works by this Viennese expressionist. So here I offer you a crash-course on the problematic topics of 20th century art: the borderline between art and pornography, the relevance of the artist's personality to the interpretation of his works, and the question of the objective and subjective value of art. We will restrict ourselves to those data from the artist's biography, whose traces can be clearly seen in his works. Most of our attention will be focused on the principles of interpretation that are relevant for 20th century art. We will analyse the difference between pornography and art, discuss the limits of self-expression and the impact of "problematic" works of art on society as a whole. We will turn to the principles of art therapy, the works of Sigmund Freud and one of Scheherazade's tales for commentary on controversial works. This tour is suitable for those interested in Viennese Art Nouveau and those who want to find an approach to 20th century art.
