Austrian Masterworks from the Neue Galerie New York

September 22, 2016-September 25, 2017

This exhibition celebrates the fifteenth anniversary of the Neue Galerie’s founding. Highlights from the museum’s extensive collection of Austrian art from the period 1890 to 1940 are on view, including major paintings and drawings by Gustav Klimt, Oskar Kokoschka, Alfred Kubin, and Egon Schiele. Icons of modern design are also featured, such as furniture designed by architects Otto Wagner and Adolf Loos, as well as objects made by the Wiener Werkstätte after designs by Josef Hoffmann, Koloman Moser, and Dagobert Peche.

The center gallery features an extraordinary selection of Klimt’s sensuous depictions of women, including both portraits of Adele Bloch-Bauer (1907 and 1912), as well as paintings of Gertha Loew (1902), Elisabeth Lederer (1914-15), and Ria Munk (1917). This special presentation includes four major loans that have been extended following the recent exhibition, “Klimt and the Women of Vienna’s Golden Age, 1900-1918.” The Neue Galerie appreciates the generosity of the private lenders who made this presentation possible, which offers a rare opportunity to see some of Klimt’s most important and beloved canvases. Special thanks are due to Neue Galerie President and co-founder Ronald S. Lauder.

A fully-illustrated catalogue, published by Prestel Verlag, accompanies the exhibition, featuring a major overview of of the Neue Galerie's holdings of fine art and design from Germany and Austria.

This exhibition is made possible in part by the Neue Galerie President’s Circle.
