By Klaus H Carl, Victoria Charles


Symbol of a forecasted revolution, the Viennese Secession possesses inside itself the dissidence of approximately twenty proficient artists opposed to the conservative academicism which petrified Vienna and the entire Austro-Hungarian Empire at that time.
Influenced by way of the artwork Nouveau, the Secession, created in 1897 by way of Klimt, Moll and Hoffmann, was once no longer an nameless creative revolution between such a lot of others. Dissenting in essence, defining itself as an “art total”, with none political or advertisement constraint, this move resembles extra the philosophy that the ideological turmoil affected the craftsmen, architects, image artists and architects. Turning apart from the tested artwork to dive into the beneficiant and ornamental shapes of flowers and the opposite nymphs, the artists open themselves to an estheticism of which erotic energy may purely offend the bourgeoisie of the time.
Painting, sculpture, structure are faced via the writer of this e-book, to spotlight the range and the richness of a move whom univocal motto, “For at any time when its paintings, for every artwork its liberty.”, illustrate the innovation and originality.
