Vienna 1900: Art, Life & Culture
Synopses & Reviews
At the turn of the 20th century, Vienna was one of the most exciting cities on earth—the central gathering spot of the European avant-garde in art, architecture, literature, music, journalism, philosophy, psychiatry, and theater. The dynamic cross-pollination among the revolutionary figures involved—Klimt, Kokoschka, the Wiener Werkstätte, Mahler, Freud, Wittgenstein, and many more—turned the Austrian capital into an extraordinary laboratory for new ideas and concepts. It is where modern was born.
With more than 500 illustrations, Vienna 1900 is a unique, concise portrait of a vibrant world and its most important protagonists.
