Exhibition: Franz von Zülow
From 27.11.2013 to 11.05.2014
Organised by MAK
On the occasion of the 130th birthday of Franz von Zülow, an artist shaped by a fashionable inclination toward rural life and the reflection of rural heritage, works on paper from the MAK collection and the artist´s estate will be exhibited. Von Zülow did his training at the Kunstgewerbeschule in Vienna, where he already created illustrations and designs for the Wiener Werkstätte. Active in many areas, Zülow designed textile patterns, carpets, ceramics, and interiors and developed new graphic techniques. His most important achievements in this area are the monthly pen-in-ink-drawn notebooks produced in a paper-cut stencil printing process from 1909 to 1915, subscribed to by artists such as Hoffmann, Klimt, and Schiele. Clearly evident in these works is his decorative, Jugendstil- derived surface art, which he combined with folk art inspirations. Arising at the same time were stage-like watercolors and scenic picture books along the lines of a diorama in expressive style.
Curator Kathrin Pokorny-Nagel, Head of Library and Works on Paper Collection
As part of the bookseries MAK Studies, a catalogue will be published in conjunction with the exhibition.

Exhibition: "Line and Shape" 100 Master Drawings from the Leopold Collection
From 23.05.2014 to 27.10.2014
Organised by Leopold Museum
The present exhibition "Line and Shape" unites 100 eminent examples of masterful draftsmanship of the 19th and 20th centuries. The exhibition features works by some of the best draftsmen of the 20th century, including Egon Schiele, Gustav Klimt and Alfred Kubin. Further highlights include design drawings by members of the Wiener Werkstätte as well as works by artists whose abilities as draftsmen are often overshadowed by their painterly oeuvre, such as Albin Egger-Lienz, Hans Böhler and Anton Kolig. More than any other medium, drawings manage to convey the immediate connection between inspiration and artistic execution. Whether as sketchy nature studies or elaborate drawings with meticulous attention to detail, this genre´s rank as an autonomous artistic medium has always been undisputed.
