Menu Close

Friday 23 April 2021 – The Two Gustavs – Mahler and Klimt

Lecturer: Gavin Plumley

Gustav Klimt and his colleagues broke away from the Imperial-endorsed art institutions in Vienna in 1897 and founded the Succession. That was the same year that Gustav Mahler arrived to take charge of the Opera House in the city. This lecture asks what fundamentally links and, indeed, divides Klimt and Mahler.
