Inspirational Beethoven. A Symphony in Pictures from Vienna 1900
Now on  - Apr 4, 2021

How do you turn a musical symphony into visual art? Ask Josef Maria Auchentaller. Klimt's colleague and verified Art Nouveau nerd, Auchentaller used Beethoven's Symphony No. 6 (the Pastoral Symphony) as the inspiration for his monumental pictorial program. The ensemble consists of five paintings and represents the first artistic-pictorial realization of all the movements of a Beethoven symphony. It set off the trend for the decorative music room tradition, which experienced its heyday around the 1900s.

Marking the 250th birthday of Beethoven, the ensemble will be reconstructed for the first time at the Leopold Museum. Uncover the gesamtkunstwerk, the total work of art achieved between visual art and music – the focus of this exhibition.

I was really impressed by the way the museum presents the secession, which was one of the most revolutionary movements in the history of art.
