This course will explore the important and influential artists based in Vienna, between 1890 to 1920, a time when the city was known as a centre of high culture, wealth and opulence attracting innovators in music, art and philosophy known then as the fin de siècle. We will explore how the work of artists such as Gustav Klimt was rejected by the long established fine art institutions prompting several young artist to set up their group named the Vienna Secession in 1897. These artists and designers including Gustav Klimt and Koloman Moser created modern and challenging new art and design culminating in the Secession building in 1898. We will look at their their work, the Secession movement, the Wiener Werkstatte in Vienna and importantly the eventual move away from the Jugend style typified by Gustav Klimt to the expressionistic approach by Egon Schiele
