A Showcase of Grandeur

Dates: July 3 to October 11, 2015

Vienna - During the boom years in the second half of the nineteenth century, mansions and splendid public buildings proliferated on Vienna's magnificent boulevard, the Ringstrasse.   In summer 2015, the Belvedere will be dedicating the exhibition "Klimt and the Ringstrasse" to those charismatic painters who adorned the Rings buildings and shaped the style of their era.  Starting with the  oeuvre of the "painter Prince Hans Makart, it traces developments up to the triumph of the young Gustav Klimt amd his painter's collective, the Künstler-Compagnie. Reconstructions of entire decorative ensembles will present the dazzling lifestyle during the Ringstrasse era to visitors. The exhibition will not only feature sensuous narrative artworks, but also examples of young Klimt's art, which have never been shown to the public before.
