Emil Jakob Schindler - Poetic Realism

27 September 2012 to 13 January 2013
Upper BelvedereBelvedere

With this special presentation, the Belvedere introduces one of the most important exponents of atmospheric Impressionism and explores the artist’s international relationship primarily to French nineteenth-century art.
Schindler, who was born in 1842 and died in 1892, celebrates a dual anniversary in 2012. With his new vision of nature, he developed an alternative to the opulent art practiced during the era of the Vienna Ringstraße. Pursuing neither a purely documentary realism nor an  exaggerated lyrical transfiguration, Schindler strove for the reconciliation of nature with manmade objects.
