Art in Vienna

Art in Vienna Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The artistic stagnation of Vienna at the end of the nineteenth century was rudely shaken by the artists of the Secession. Their works at first shocked a conservative public; but their successive exhibitions, their magazine Ver Sacrum and their dedication to the applied arts and architecture soon brought them an enthusiastic following and wealthy patronage. With sixty new colour illustrations, this classic book, now in its third edition, brilliantly traces the course of this development, of the Wiener Werkstatte that followed, and the individual works of the artists concerned. The result is a fascinating documentary study of the successes and failures, hopes and fears of the members of an artistic movement that is much admired today.
