The Art and Culture of Fin-de-Siècle Vienna.

Gavin Plumley

At the turn of the last century, Vienna was the capital of a vast empire and one of the most exciting artistic places in the world. It produced painters such as Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele, architects like Otto Wagner and Adolf Loos, the psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud, the composer Gustav Mahler and the philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein. Gavin will discuss how and why Vienna became such a cultural centre around 1900.
