Two Gustavs: Mahler and Klimt

The Arts Society Leicester present Two Gustavs: Mahler and Klimt

Speaker – Gavin Plumley

Gustav Klimt and his colleagues broke away from the imperially endorsed art institutions in Vienna in 1897 and founded the Secession. That was the same year that Gustav Mahler arrived to take charge of the Opera House in the city. Comparing these two totemic fin de siècle talents, this lecture places Klimt and Mahler in context, asking what fundamentally links and, indeed, divides them.
