RA: Lates Vienna Cabaret
Viennese society women would host regular salons for artists and intellectuals at the turn of the century. These wealthy patrons commissioned portraits by Klimt, collected his artwork and cemented his status as the city’s most sought after artist.
One of the most infamous salons were those hosted by Berta Zuckerkandl, journalist and art critic at her five-storey palatial townhouse at Palais Lieben-Auspitz, where artists, scientists and writers would mix and exchange ideas, from Auguste Rodin, Josef Hoffmann, Max Reinhard and Gustav Klimt.
Audiences stepped inside our re-imagining of the infamous Viennese salons, and left their note in the guestbook.
