‘Klimt. The Secession and Italy’ on display in Rome
The major exhibition ‘ Klimt. The Secession and Italy ‘, open to the public from 27 October 2021 to 27 March 2022, is housed at the Museo di Roma – Palazzo Braschi in Rome.
The exhibition traces the artistic stages of Gustav Klimt through 14 sections and a focus on “Portrait of a Lady” (a painting from 1916, stolen in 1997 and finally found in 2019), underlines Klimt’s role as co-founder of the Viennese Secession and, for the first time, investigates the artist’s relationship with Italy, narrating his travels and exhibition successes, such as his participation in the 1910 Venice Biennale.
Klimt and the artists of his circle are represented by over 200 works including paintings, drawings, posters, and sculptures, exceptionally loaned by the Belvedere Museum in Vienna and the Klimt Foundation.
