-> Secession Building in Vienna:
"The Secession Building (German: Wiener Secessionsgebäude) is an exhibition hall built in 1897 by Joseph Maria Olbrich as an architectural manifesto for the Vienna Secession, located in Vienna, Austria. Secession refers to the seceding of a group of rebel artists from the long-established fine art institution.
The motto of the Secessionist movement is written above the entrance of the pavilion: "To every age its art, to every art its freedom" (German: Der Zeit ihre Kunst. Der Kunst ihre Freiheit). Below this is a sculpture of three gorgons representing painting, sculpture, and architecture"

Years ago I was mesmerized by the Gustav Klimt exhibition at the Secession building.......but by the building itself! The gold dome and the striking architectural details had drawn me in, and then the ART! Sublime.ReplyDelete
