CITY OF WOMEN: FEMALE ARTISTS IN VIENNA FROM 1900 TO 1938
New exhibition draws on works by around 60 women who lived and worked between 1900 and 1938.
Today, hardly anyone knows who they were, even though they made a part of art history: artists such as Elena Luksch-Makowsky, Helene Funke, and Erika Giovanna Klien contributed significantly to Viennese Modernism and artistic trends that manifested after the First World War. To commemorate these artists, their art, and their emancipatory achievements, a long overdue retrospective has now been staged in the Lower Belvedere.
CITY OF WOMEN: FEMALE ARTISTS IN VIENNA FROM 1900 TO 1938- Belvedere Museum
This show brings these women back into focus. On view, in part, are rediscovered works – some of which are being presented for the first time ever – by those artists who were known in their time, but whose eminence today has completely vanished. They were nonetheless able to leave their marks on art movements such as Atmospheric Impressionism, Secessionism, Expressionism, Kinetism, and New Objectivity.
On view are works by Ilse Bernheimer, Maria Cyrenius, Friedl Dicker, Marie Egner, Louise Fraenkel-Hahn, Helene Funke, Greta Freist, Margarete Hamerschlag, Fanny Harlfinger-Zakucka, Hermine Heller-Ostersetzer, Johanna Kampmann-Freund, Elisabeth Karlinsky, Erika Giovanna Klien, Broncia Koller-Pinell, Frida Konstantin Lohwag, Elza Kövesházi-Kalmár, Leontine von Littrow, Elena Luksch-Makowsky, Mariette Lydis, Emilie Mediz-Pelikan, Teresa Feodorowna Ries, Mileva Roller, Frieda Salvendy, Emma Schlangenhausen, Anny Schröder-Ehrenfest, Lilly Steiner, Helene Taussig, Ilse Twardowski-Conrat, My Ullmann, Olga Wisinger-Florian, Grete Wolf Krakauer oder Franziska Zach. Curator: Sabine Fellner
