Viennese specialist, Gavin Plumley, explores the life and work of these two figures from the fin de siècle.
As the founding president of the Secession, Klimt was the leading exponent of new art in the city at the time. And it was to him that the young Schiele was to turn for guidance. The relationship between the two was, however, to be more complex and as Schiele launched his career with a series of bold, expressionistic art works, Klimt began to emulate his junior.
This talk will complement the exhibitions at Tate Liverpool and the Royal Academy.
