INSPIRATIONAL BEETHOVEN - A Symphony in Pictures from Vienna 1900

INSPIRATIONAL BEETHOVEN - A Symphony in Pictures from Vienna 1900

Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6, known as the Pastoral Symphony, inspired the Viennese Jugendstil artist and Klimt colleague Josef Maria Auchentaller (1865-1949) to create a monumental pictorial program in 1898/99 to adorn the music room at the villa of his father-in- law, the silver jewelry manufacturer Georg Adam Scheid. The ensemble, consisting of five paintings, represents the first artistic-pictorial realization of all movements of a Beethoven symphony and is a singular example of the tradition of music rooms, which experienced its heyday around 1900. Marking the 250th birthday of Ludwig van Beethoven, the ensemble will be reconstructed for the first time in Austria at the Leopold Museum, where the history of this Gesamtkunstwerk, or universal work of art, will be highlighted through a focus exhibition in the context of the permanent presentation Vienna 1900.
