Location: Lower Belvedere

During the boom years in the second half of the nineteenth century, a multitude of mansions and splendid public buildings sprang up around Vienna’s magnificent boulevard, the Ringstrasse. In summer 2015, the Belvedere will be dedicating the exhibition Klimt and the Ringstrasse to those charismatic painters who adorned the Ring’s buildings and shaped the style of their era. Starting with the oeuvre of “painter prince” Hans Makart, it traces developments up to the triumph of the young Gustav Klimt and his painters’ collective, the Künstler-Compagnie. Reconstructions of entire decorative ensembles will present the dazzling lifestyle during the Ringstrasse era to visitors. The exhibition will not only feature sensuous, narrative artworks, but also examples of the young Klimt’s art, which have never been shown to the public before.
