Apr 24, 2019 at 10:00 am - Aug 5, 2019 at 6:00 pm¥1,600
Around the turn of the 20th century, Austrian artists itched to transform and transcend existing forms of painting, sculpture, architecture and design, protesting outdated artistic practices. Four pioneers stood at the helm of Viennese Modernism: painters Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele, architect Otto Wagner and artist Koloman Moser. For the 150th anniversary of Japanese-Austrian diplomacy, The National Art Center, Tokyo is displaying over 400 works by artists including the aforementioned pioneers. Other exhibition highlights include masterpieces from the second half of the 18th century and the Biedermeier period (1814-1848).
