In an exhibition in Milan at the Palazzo Reale next to the Duomo, some of the most famous materpieces of Gustav Klimt from the most important museum collections are on exhibit through July 13, 2014.
Klimt: Alle Origini di un Mito concentrates on the formation, development, and the apex of the career of the Austrian artist, bringing together many of Klimt’s works including 20 of his oil paintings in addition to other of his works as well as those of artists close to him, beginning with his brothers Ernst and Georg, for a total of more than 100 works.
The reconstruction of the original “Beethoven Frieze” – exhibited in 1902 at the Vienna Secession in Vienna, founded in 1897 – will close the exhibition, occupying an entire room and submerging the visitor in the work of art — the great desire of the artists of the Vienna Secession. The entire exhibition integrates themes and works of art in the context of the art movement.
The exhibition aims to investigate the emotional and family relationships of Klimt, exploring the beginnings of his career at the School of Applied Arts in Vienna and his great passion for theater and music through the exhibition of works coming from other important museums, including several masterpieces such as Adam and Eve, Judith II, Sunflower (Sonnenblume) and Bewegtes Wasser.
