Both Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele fed on the energy of modernity in the early years of the twentieth century, an energy revived once more in the exhibition, “Klimt/Schiele: Drawings from the Albertina Museum, Vienna” on view at London’s Royal Academy of Art from 4 November 2018 to 3 February 2019.

Organized to coincide with the centennial of both artist’s deaths, “Klimt/Schiele” brings together approximately 100 of the most exceptional examples of these artists’ drawings to showcase how two artists, different in both age and artistic outlook, entered into an intriguing artistic dialogue on the exploration of the modern world.

Enter the world of these masters with a reading of the Complete Paintings of Gustav Klimt, a scintillating survey of the iconic Viennese artist’s oeuvre captured through impeccable imagery and quality prose, or Egon Schiele, a focused look at the theme of eroticism in the artist’s work.
