Our London Classes
Take Your Learning Offline

London Art Studies was founded in 2011. We started with a few friends who gathered for lunch and a lecture and we have, since then, developed and evolved into the LAS which you see today: a curated digital hub with a global audience. We always want to remain true to those early days and continue to offer our students the opportunity to see our lecturers 'teaching live' in our home city. We hope to welcome you to one of our classes soon.

Vienna 1918: The end and the beginning
Tuesday 11th December 2018
10am - 12pm
, Day Class
The Bulgari Hotel, 171 Knightsbridge, London, SW7 1DW

There have been numerous exhibitions and books entitled Vienna 1900, as this date at the very turn of the century seems to embody the height of creativity of the Secession, the remarkable Viennese embodiment of Art Nouveau. However, nothing specifically happened that year. Eighteen years later, however, the movement came to a definitive end with the deaths of no fewer than four of its principal artists: Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Kolomon Moser and Otto Wagner.

The Royal Academy will be celebrating this centenary with an exhibition of rare and fragile drawings by the better-known artists, Klimt and Schiele, and they will form the subjects for our first two talks. The third talk will introduce Moser and Wagner, both fundamental to the development of the Secessionist Style; Moser most famous perhaps for his remarkable and energetic poster designs, whilst Wagner, as an architect, was responsible for the construction of modern-day Vienna.
