Gustav Klimt in Vienna

Many of Klimt's works, especially those from his early years, are on permanent display in Vienna: in the Secession, the Burgtheater, the Kunsthistorisches Museum and in the MAK Museum of Applied Arts.

Secession

The Secession building is one of Vienna's most stunning attractions. Fans of Klimt, a co-founder of the movement, will find his world-famous 1902 Beethoven Frieze there. This cycle, dedicated to Ludwig van Beethoven, adorns three walls and measures approximately 34 by 2 meters.

Kunsthistorisches Museum (Art History Museum)

The stairwell of the Kunsthistorisches Museum is of particular interest to Klimt fans. Here 40 spandrel paintings and other decorative works adorn the narrow sections of wall between the arches and columns. Eleven of these were completed by Gustav Klimt, and the remainder by his brother Ernst and Franz Matsch. The images depict the history of art and applied arts from their ancient Egyptian beginnings to the modern age. 

Burgtheater

Valuable sketches by Gustav Klimt for the ceiling paintings above the grand staircase of the Burg­theater were discovered in the attic of the theatre in the late 1990s, rescuing this priceless trove of studies, including the artist's only self-portrait, from destruction. Today these sketches are on display in a dedicated Klimt room which can be seen as part of a guided tour that also takes in the ceiling paintings above the grand staircase.

Museum of Applied Arts/Contemporary Art (MAK)

Josef Hoffmann and Gustav Klimt joined forces to work on the Palais Stoclet in Brussels. Between 1905 and 1909 Klimt designed the Stoclet Frieze. His nine study sketches are on display in Vienna at the MAK. The MAK also owns the estate of the world-famous Wiener Werkstätte which contains studies, model books, photo volumes, original fabric patterns, embroideries and the full company archive.

In addition, important works of Gustav Klimt are permanently on display in the Upper  Belvedere, in the Wien Museum and in the Leopold Museum.
