Hundertwasser – Schiele. Imagine Tomorrow

Friedensreich Hundertwasser (1928–2000) shaped 20th-century art beyond the borders of Austria as a painter, designer of living spaces and pioneer of the environmental movement. His life-long, intense exploration of the personality and oeuvre of Egon Schiele (1890–1918) is largely unknown. Twenty years after Hundertwasser’s death, the Leopold Museum is dedicating an exhibition, conceived as a dialogue, to these two iconic artists, which comprises some 170 exhibits.
