Exhibition at the Upper Belvedere in Vienna
Belvedere – Vienna Secession
For visitors interested in Austrian art, the Upper Belvedere Palace is a must-see. It is home to the most important and largest collection of Austrian artists, commencing with medieval art. The highlights of the exhibition at the Belvedere are the works of the Vienna Secession with the focus on Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele. The world-famous 'Kiss' and 'Judith' (holding the head of Holofernes in her hand) form the core of an artistic body of work that was the subject of extremely critical debate at all times during Klimt's life and only much later achieved the recognition it deserved. Both the Lower Belvedere Palace and the Museum in the Upper Belvedere offer guided tours of the exhibitions and collections to provide an art-historical context for the works and to answer the questions of visitors.
Gustav Klimt at the Belvedere
Enter the majestic Belvedere Palace. After a visit to the Lower Belvedere, you can explore Austrian paintings from the Middle Ages to the 21st century in the Upper Belvedere. The highlight of any visit to the Upper Belvedere is most certainly 'The Kiss' by Gustav Klimt.
Gustav Klimt is unquestionably one of the great names in Austrian art. Born the son of an simple gold engraver, he forged a career as the most famous proponent of the Viennese Art Deco style and one of Vienna's most sought-after artists. A major portion of his work is on display at the Upper Belvedere Palace and the collection is a must-see on any trip to Vienna.
