Facing the Modern: The Portrait in Vienna 1900

The National Gallery hosts an exhibition dedicated to the central role that portraiture played in Viennese painting around 1900.

From the late 19th century until the end of world war one in 1918 Vienna was a wealthy and multicultural city that set trends in society, philosophy and modern thinking.

Advances in the arts were epitomised by painters such as Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Richard Gerstl and Oskar Kokoschka, all of whose work is on show in this exhibition, along with lesser-known artists such as Arnold Schönberg, Broncia Koller and Isidor Kaufmann.

The works on display are on loan from major collections such as Vienna's Belvedere and New York's MoMA.

10.00-18.00 Fri 10.00-21.00
