Rediscovering Portfolio Prints by Gustav Klimt & Egon Schiele

March 31 – May 31, 2006

Press Release

Rediscovering Portfolio Prints by Gustav Klimt & Egon Schiele was an exhibition that brought to light a class of neglected masterpieces by two of Vienna's most beloved modern artists. It examined four portfolios by Klimt and two by Schiele. These print folios, labors of love for the artists and their publishers, were made to disseminate the work to an audience beyond Vienna. They are also marvels of collotype, the challenging form of printmaking that was employed in their production. Full color prints of Klimt's paintings including The Kiss (1907-08), Pallas Athene (1891), and Emilie Floge, and Schiele's Kneeling Female Nude, and monchrome and halftone images of scores of other works were displayed in magnificent, custom-made frames.
