“Vienna 1900: Style and Identity”
The museum’s name, which means “new gallery,” was party inspired by Vienna’s famous Neue Galerie which in the early twentieth century was one of the most important places to see the work of artists like Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele. Today, the Neue Galerie New York is the American home to some of the finest examples of German and Austrian art by these and other artists. Currently on view at the Neue Galerie is “Vienna 1900: Style and Identity.” The exhibition follows the development of a specifically modern Viennese sense of identity. Featured artists include Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Otto Wagner, and Josef Hoffmann, through August 8.
