Why you will love it?

At the very beginning of the 20th century, Paris is, as we all know, one of the biggest cities of art in the world. But, it is not alone. Vienna, the capital of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, underwent an artistic explosion with a movement derived from the Art Nouveau: The Secession. Gustav Klimt played an essential role in the evolution of this artistic trend. The Pinacothèque exhibition retraces the evolution of the Vienna Secession through an exceptional collection of 180 paintings, sculptures, pieces of furniture, and photos. Enjoy! Parisianist

Our Insiders' Article

In the Time of Klimt


The exhibition at the Pinacothèque de Paris entitled In The Time of Klimt is a perfect introduction to one of the branches of Art Nouveau that developed in Vienna at the beginning of the 20th century: the Secession. It allows you to discover the major actors of this artistic movement, headed by Gustav Klimt. In total, 180 works are displayed (paintings, sculptures, photographs, and even pieces of furniture) including two of Klimt’s masterpieces: Judith I and the Beethoven Frieze. But what is the Secession?

Parisianist Info: To avoid long lines, you can reserve your tickets online (extra 1.50€). To avoid the crowd, head to the exhibition during the week, preferably during lunch hours.

The secession

Like elsewhere in Europe (as we saw with the birth of Impressionism in France in the 1870s), the early 20th century marked a shift in the artistic world in Vienna. Headed by Gustav Klimt, 20 or so artists distanced themselves from structured painting and academic style, and founded the Secession, an artistic movement that displayed a reflection on art, rather than a precise artistic technique. It aimed to free art. The In The Time of Klimt exhibition accurately shows this departure from the classic and the adherence to the artistic style of the time.

Parisianist Fun Fact: In this era, Freud invented psychoanalysis, and some artists included psychological traits of their subjects in their portraits!

Judith I

One of the masterpieces in the In The Time of Klimt exhibition is Judith I by Gustav Klimt, which can be found near the middle of the exhibition. What is interesting about this piece, created in 1901, is that the artist added gold and silver leaves to the painting in order to accentuate the brilliance and authenticity of the jewelry. Other female portraits by Gustav Klimt are also remarkable

Beethoven Frieze

In 1902, the artists of the Viennese Secession decided to pay homage to Beethoven. In the Palace of the Secession, the exhibition hall inaugurated in 1897 by the artists themselves, Klimt unveiled an interpretation of the composer’s 9th Symphony: the Beethoven Frieze. This giant painting stretches along the length of the hall at the Pinacothèque and is placed in the middle, on display among the masterpieces of the exhibition.


The exhibition opens with the tie between the artistic movement and Paris, because many of the Secession artists had painted in Paris. Over time, the artistic movement scattered. Some rejected the idea of art as a whole, while others, including Klimt, abandoned the movement and went on to become world-famous artists. It was these direct disciples of Klimt who gave rise to Expressionism, the final touch of the exhibition.
