The Vienna Secession was formed in 1897 when a group of artists broke away from the official academy, the Kunstlerhaus, in Vienna, Austria to form their own group. These artists thought that contemporary art of the time was far too conservative and too commercial. They sought to relate art to the ordinary people and to put art on a par with crafts and handicrafts. Among this group propounding the liberation of art were its founder, Gustav Klimt, Ferdinand Knopff, Constantin Meunier, Egon Schiele and the architect, Joseph-Maria Olbrich. Some of their works can be seen at this enlightening exhibition.
