(Until September 2) Fans of the luminous work of Gustave Klimt and the vivid energy of Egon Schiele will flock to this show of highlights from the museum’s extensive collection of Austrian art from the period 1890 to 1940. The display features an extraordinary selection of Klimt’s paintings, including the early portrait of Gertha Loew (1902) and the “golden style” portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer (1907).
Want to learn more? There’s a team of docents who offer forty-five minute tours of the highlights of the permanent collection and the special exhibition. It’s free, no reservations are needed; just meet on the second floor in the Klimt gallery at 3:30pm on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday.
