Gustav Klimt at Spazio Oberdan

4 February-6 May 2012. To celebrate Gustav Klimt's (1862-1918) 150th anniversary, Spazio Oberdan pays homage to this Austrian Symbolist painter and one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Secession movement with this exhibition, entitled Drawings around Beethoven's Frieze.

On display is the life-sized reproduction of the great Beethoven's Frieze, accompanied by the notes of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, as well as 15 original drawings related to the famous fresco hosted at the Secession Palace in Vienna.

This exhibition also features some original posters of Vienna Secession, better known as the Union of Austrian Artists, formed among others by painters, sculptors and architects, such as Koloman Moser, Josef Hoffmann, Joseph Maria Olbrich, Max Kurzweil, Alfred Roller, Ferdinand Hodler and Leopold Stolba in 1897.
