Albertina museum Vienna
Gottfried HELNWEIN speaks at the opening of the 100th Anniversary exhibition for Egon Schiele at the Albertina Museum in Vienna
To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the death of Egon Schiele, the Albertina has mounted a
comprehensive exhibition of artworks by Egon Schiele that positions his radical oeuvre within an epoch characterised by a schism between the modernist and the traditional. 160 of Schiele’s most magnificent gouaches and drawings will introduce viewers to an artistic oeuvre that highlights human beings’ existential loneliness as its great theme while drastically opposing the values of fin de siècle society.
On February 21st, at the opening of this exhibition, Gottfried Helnwein was invited to give a talk on the artist.
