When traditional craft met blossoming Modernism

  • Hardcover
  • 21 x 26 cm
  • 96 pages
  • ISBN 978-3-8365-6705-3

Poets and intellectuals brushed shoulders in bustling coffeehouses, young avant-gardists heralded a new era in social and sexual liberalism, waltzes resounded through the Ringstrasse, the Vienna Secession preached: “To every age its art — to every art its freedom;” and tremors warned of looming political disintegration when the Austrian capital passed into a new century.

Across economics, science, art, and music, Vienna blossomed into a “laboratory of modernity,” one which nurtured some of the greatest artistic innovators.

Each book in TASCHEN’s Basic Genre series features:
  • approximately 100 color illustrations with explanatory captions
  • a detailed, illustrated introduction
  • a selection of the most important works of the epoch, each presented on a two-page spread with a full-page image and accompanying interpretation, as well as a portrait and brief biography of the artist
