Under the subheading "Fleeting Worlds" the Clouds exhibition at the Leopold Museum presents a collection of paintings by a diverse group of artists from the 19th century to the present day, all of whom were captivated by clouds.

For Tobias G. Natter, who is curating the exhibition along with Franz Smola, the artists' fascination in the subject can be traced to clouds representing a “fascinating phenomena between the earth and the infinite beyond.”

The exhibited artists range from J.M.W. Turner and Claude Monet to Max Beckmann and Gerhard Richter. The show is divided into 12 sections, highlighting the various ways in which artists have depicted clouds over the past two centuries. 

Wed-Mon 10.00-18.00. Thurs 10.00-21.00
