The Kiss to the Whole World: Klimt and the Vienna Secession

Gustav Klimt fans will love this gorgeously designed, informative website created by the New York Art Resources Consortium, a collaboration between the Frick Collection, the Brooklyn Museum, and the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA). This online exhibit is dedicated to the Vienna Secession, an Austrian artistic movement that Klimt led between 1897-1904. During this time, the group put on 25 exhibitions at the Secession House in Vienna, two of which are highlighted here. The Beethoven Exhibit, which was inspired by Richard Wagner's rendition of Beethoven's 9th symphony, featured Klimt's Beethoven Frieze: The Kiss to the Whole World. Meanwhile, the Klimt Exhibit solely featured Klimt's work, including The Pear Tree and Pallas Athene. On this website, visitors can view these paintings in detail, examine the digitized catalogs of all Vienna Secession exhibits, and browse promotional postcards and posters. In addition, readers will find a detailed timeline of the Vienna Secession movement and information about the Secession House.
