About this item

Female portraits and nudes, mothers & children, and couples by the three most outstanding painters of Viennese modernism. In the early 20th century, the traditional relationship between the sexes was challenged by a number of social, economic,and philosophical changes. It was above all the incipientdevelopment towards gender equity that provoked vehementcounter-arguments. On the other hand, sexual liberation canbe seen as a common goal of men and women, since theyboth sought to escape the restrictive moral taboos of the 19thcentury. Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, and Oskar Kokoschka--thenthe three most outstanding painters of Viennese modernism--approached the subject matter generally referred to as the"woman question" from slightly different, albeit overlappingperspectives. The book will present an in-depth exploration ofthese differences and similarities.
