Hundertwasser Schiele: Imagine Tomorrow
(999 items available)
As a painter, designer of living spaces and pioneer of the environmental movement, Friedensreich Hundertwasser helped shape 20th-century art. His lifelong intense exploration of the personality and oeuvre of Egon Schiele is largely unknown. At the age of 20, when he was a student at the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts, Hundertwasser discovered Viennese modernism through exhibitions and books, and Schiele in particular would later emerge as a central point of reference.Shining the spotlight on central motifs and themes in the works of both artists, such as "ensouled nature" and the relationship between the individual and society. Hundertwasser & Schiele: Imagine Tomorrow illustrates the points of analogy in their oeuvres that extend beyond mere formal similarity, and retraces the artistic and spiritual kinship of two extraordinary 20th-century Austrian artists.
