The Millburn Free Public Library is pleased to welcome art historian Janet Mandel to the library for a presentation on Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, and Vienna's Golden Age. This program will be held on Thursday, Oct 10 and Thursday, Oct 17, 2019 at 7:00pm in the library auditorium.
Gustav Klimt dominated cultural life in Vienna at the turn of the Twentieth Century and rode the crest of the wave of modernism that captured the European imagination. Egon Schiele, who was Klimt’s protégé, shocked the art world with his dazzling and often erotic works. Part I of this talk will tell the story of Klimt’s extraordinary life and examine his ebullient landscapes, sensual drawings, and ravishing portraits. Part II will focus on Egon Schiele— his intense, expressive works, and his productive but tragically abbreviated life.
This program is free and open to all. It is sponsored by the Friends of the Millburn Library. The Millburn Free Public Library is located at 200 Glen Ave., Millburn, NJ 07041 and can be reached at 973-376-1006.
