Leopold Museum

Masterpieces of the Viennese Secessionist Movement, the Viennese Modernist Movement and the Austrian Expressionist Movement

The LEOPOLD COLLECTION is one of the most important collections of modern Austrian art in the world. The more than 5,000 exhibits collected by Rudolf and Elisabeth Leopold over five decades were consolidated in 1994 with the assistance of the Republic of Austria and the National Bank of Austria into the LEOPOLD MUSEUM PRIVATE FOUNDATION.

Hermann Hesse
Poet and Painter
02/23/2007 – 06/03/2007

The first comprehensive show in Austria on the life and work of Nobel Prize winner Hermann Hesse is on view from 23 February through 3 June 2007. In addition to Hesse’s relatively unknown watercolours, the internationally renowned Hesse expert and editor of the complete edition Volker Michels and curator Dr. Bettina Leder-Hindemith have assembled a large selection of original letters, photos, poems and manuscripts for this exhibition at the Leopold Museum. Thus the show provides insight into the wide-ranging creativity of this versatile artist.
