Learn More About Vienna Secession

There are several significant art movements which marked the turn of the century, but certainly one of the most prolific was the Vienna Secession. It grew out of the revolt of the artists who were eager to question traditional understanding of what art is and what art should be in regards to the society. Unified by a new vision, this group of artists, architects and designers introduced new concepts by embracing different influences and in general opened a path for the upcoming wave of Modernism.

Governed by a desire to move things forward, in 1897 a group of Austrian artists including Gustav Klimt, Koloman Moser, Egon Schiele, Max Kurzweil, Joseph Maria Olbrich and others resigned from the Association of Austrian Artists, housed in the Vienna Künstlerhaus, and established the Union of Austrian Artists, or Vereinigung Bildender Künstler Österreichs. The group is now known as the Vienna Secession, and its production was dense and stimulative practically until the outbreak of the World War I.

The Vienna Secession movement and the Weiner Werkstätte ("Viennese Workshop"), which was the decorative arts arm of the movement were born around the same time as the Art Nouveau style and borrowed some of the same ideas. Inspired by the English and Scottish Arts and Crafts movement, Josef Hoffmann founded the Weiner Werkstätte in 1903 together with graphic designer and painter Koloman Moser and industrialist Fritz Waerndorfer. So prolific and popular was their work, that the Weiner Werkstätte even had a shop in New York in the early 20th century.

One of the most important concepts to come out of the Weiner Werkstätte is the gesamtkunstwerkor "total work of art." It wasn’t enough to just hang some pretty pictures—the practitioners of the Weiner Werkstätte believed in designing every detail so that even functional objects were beautiful. The workshop’s members created furniture, textiles, porcelain, glass, and works of architecture.
