Facing the Modern: The Portrait in Vienna 1900

Lecture | Yorkshire Museum

Thursday 14 November 2013 - 18:30 until 20:30

The National Gallery's autumn exhibition examines the central role portraiture played in Viennese painting during the last years of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Dr Gemma Blackshaw, curator of this ground-breaking exhibition, and Associate Professor in Art History at Plymouth University will discuss the striking paintings of Gustav Klimt, Oskar Kokoschka and Egon Schiele and the upheaval in tradition which marked the years around 1900.

This event has been organised by a local supporter group to help raise money for the Art Fund.
