In the course of the Klimt anniversary year the Wien Museum has for the first time displayed its own holdings within an exhibition. It owns the word’s most extensive collection: In addition to famous paintings including the portrait of Emilie Flöge and the “Pallas Athene” the Wien Museum ‘s Klimt collection comprises printed works, vintage prints, poster designs and one of the artist’s smocks. The collection focuses on approx. 400 drawings and sketches on paper that are less known to a larger public. The exhibition design reflects the workshop character of the drawings collection. All 400 drawings are shown equally covering all the walls of the main exhibition hall from the floor to the ceiling.
