Network Vienna 1900 focuses on Klimt's family environment, the master's colleagues, his clients and his most important contemporaries. It also documents the places where Klimt worked, which are seen as the cradle of "Vienna 1900". Space is also given here to the places in Austria and abroad that inspired Klimt.


Vienna was one of the most important cultural and intellectual centers in Europe around 1900. In its cafés and salons, the most significant personalities on the contemporary artistic and cultural scene met to exchange ideas and to nurture and propagate modern ideologies. The intellectual and cultural environment of Modernism, with its upheavals and innovations, also had a formative influence on the oeuvre of Gustav Klimt.
