When talking about the works of Egon Schiele, the adjective ‘scandalous’ is frequently used, even though the history of art is filled with images of naked bodies. However, it is the works of Schiele that are censored even today.
The Leopold Museum in the Museumsquartier possesses the largest collection of works by this Viennese expressionist. This is why here, your guide offers you a crash course on topical issues of twentieth century art, such as the line between art and pornography, the relevance of the artist’s personality for the interpretation of their works and the discussion of the objective and subjective value of art. This tour will appeal to those who are interested in Viennese Art Nouveau and those who are looking for an approach to understanding twentieth century art.
