Interest in an artist’s personality is rarely as varied as that in Broncia Koller-Pinell (1863–1934). At a time when women were not even allowed to attend the painting academies, she had already emerged in exhibitions with the Klimt circle. She was also active as promoter and patron of the arts. Her salon in Vienna and her residence in Oberwaltersdorf were meeting places for Klimt, Hoffmann, Moser, Schiele and the Austrian art scene’s élite.
On the occasion of the 150th birthday of the artist, the Landesmuseum will be presenting an overview of her work, from the beginnings as a painter up to the secessionist main works and eventually to her late work dedicated to Expressionism. The selected exhibits document more than forty years of artistic work, always examining the current art movements and great artist personalities – and always with its finger on the pulse of the age.
