Klimt & Warhol - Kuss & Kiss
11 April - 6 July 2014
The project Klimt & Warhol – Kiss & Kiss, on show in the Klimt Room and octagon at the Upper Belvedere from 11 April to 6 July 2014, presents a unique dialog by uniting two greats of twentieth-century art history: Gustav Klimt and Andy Warhol. Although at first glance these artists seem utterly contrasting, their exploration of a Kiss as a subject, which had different implications for each of them, forms a connection between them and presents these works and their historical and social context in an exciting new light. The fiftieth anniversary of Warhol’s completion of his experimental film Kiss has provided the occasion to juxtapose this with one of Klimt’s most iconic works, Lovers (also known by the title The Kiss).
