English Google translation (from french)- "Around 1900, Vienna is an artistic capital in full effervescence. It was at this time that the Viennese Secession (1897) was created, an association of artists whose painting will renew the way of painting and opening a see for the art of the twentieth century. With the aid of rich iconography and contributions from international specialists, the contribution of the four principal actors of the Viennese Secession - Klimt, Schiele, Moser, Koloschka - in the birth of modernity, reaffirmed. For the first time, these four major artists are presented and studied together. The diversity of the links that unite them but also the uniqueness of each of them are thus explored in an unprecedented way. The thematic route of the exhibition reflects the profound originality of their creations and justifies the fundamental place that is due to them. The painting of Koloman Moser, whose work in the field of decorative arts is known in the Wiener Werkstätte, is the subject of the attention it deserves. Sliding from Symbolism to Expressionism, New Pictorial Experiments: It is a key period in the history of art that is seen."
