The Belvedere focuses on the concept of French Impressionist master Claude Monet (1840-1926) as a source of inspiration for his artist peers in Vienna.
Monet was particularly popular in the Austrian capital by the turn of the 20th century after several of his paintings were displayed in venues such as the Künstlerhaus, the Secession, and the Miethke Gallery.
Monet's pioneering style influenced a new generation of Viennese artists such as Gustav Klimt, Herbert Boeckl, Heinrich Kühn, Carl Moll, Emil Jakob Schindler, Max Weiler and Franz Jaschke, as well as many other lesser-known artists who were inspired by his recurring motifs such as water lilies.
The Belvedere compares the works of Austrian painters against paintings by Monet, drawing from its own collection as well as loans from international museums and private owners.
