Klimt Donation

From Mar 9, 2012 until Mar 18, 2012
Gustav Klimt, Sunflower, 1907 © Belvedere, Vienna
Gustav Klimt, Family, 1909/10 © Belvedere, Vienna

Location: Upper Belvedere
 

The Belvedere can now rejoice in the most significant addition to its collection in the history of the Second Republic of Austria: starting on 9 March, the Viennese museum, which accommodates the largest collection of paintings by Gustav Klimt worldwide, is presenting two further works by this exceptional Austrian artist. Klimt’s works Sunflower and Family (1909/10), which were hitherto owned by the deceased Viennese art collector Peter Parzer, have entered the Belvedere’s collection. Thanks to these two donations, the Belvedere’s Klimt holdings have been increased to twenty-four paintings altogether.
 
The two works will be on display at the Upper Belvedere from 9 to 18 March 2012. Since the Sunflower will be shown in the adapted Belvedere show Klimt under the Spell of Hoffmann and the Secession in the Museo Correr in Venice from 24 March on, this will be the last opportunity for the time being to see the two paintings before the Belvedere opens its large summer exhibition 150 Years of Gustav Klimt.
