The Portrait in Vienna 1867-1918Vienna during its time as the capital of Austria-Hungary, from 1867 to 1918, is the subject of a major National Gallery exhibition in autumn 2013 which looks at the works of avant garde artists such as Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele and painter, draughtsman and lithographer Oskar Kokoschka. The period saw a flourishing of modern art in the city and The Portrait in Vienna will reveal how portraiture and how the avant-garde overthrew the traditional imperialist art from the time. The exhibition is divided into six sections including one which examines the use of the portrait to declare love and commemorate the dead, and a final section where unfinished works will be displayed.
