Don’t Miss: Vienna Celebrate 150th Birth Anniversary of the Artist Gustav Klimt

January 24, 2012 by

This year, Austria celebrates the 150th anniversary of Klimt’s birth. Gustav Klimt, born on July 14, 1862, is one of the best known figures of the Jugendstil art period.
In honor of this milestone anniversary, Vienna’s biggest museums — led by the Belvedere, the Albertina and the Leopold Museum — are proposing no less than nine exhibits during the course of the year, all promising new insights into the artist’s life.
More works by Gustav Klimt will be on display in Vienna in 2012 than ever before: from his decoration work in the Burgtheater and the Kunsthistorisches Museum to his largely unknown drawings and world-renowned paintings like The Kiss,Vienna’s tourism board has already advertised.
