Self-Portrait with Physalis (detail) by Egon Schiele, 1915

At the turn of the 20th century, Vienna was the capital of a great empire ruled by the Hapsburgs. The city was a center of political power as well as avant-garde culture, home to some of the world’s greatest composers, architects, writers, and artists. Two who helped define this age of glamour, elegance, and decadence were artists Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele. 

Art critic and adviser Judy Pomeranz explores the lives and art of these extraordinary individuals and the age in which they lived.  She examines how they were influenced by their time and place and illustrates how powerfully they reflected them in works both beautiful and shocking.
