The book marks the celebrations in Vienna for the hundred-year anniversary of the four most prominent members of modernism: Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Otto Wagner and Koloman. In the years between the 19th and 20th century Vienna was the capital of the Austro-Hungarian empire, the epicentre of a radical cultural change within the heart of Europe. These are the years of Freud and Wittgenstein, Mahler and Schönberg, of the Vienna Secession, from Jugendstil to the extraordinary Wiener Werkstätte, revolutionising applied arts and graphic. The book Vienna 1900 documents this glittering age and illustrates artistic and architectural production in all its different forms: art and architecture, photography, applied arts – ceramics, glass, textiles and jewels, furnishings and objects- and graphics for posters and publishing. The books also feature over 200 biographies of artists and architects active during those years.
