Great Art on Screen presents a series of event documentaries featuring an in-depth look at the most extraordinary and groundbreaking art masters of their time.

Klimt & Schiele: Eros & Psyche, recounts the start of the Vienna Secession, a magical art movement formed in the late 1890s for art, literature and music, in which new ideas are circulated, Freud discovers the drives of the psyche, and women begin to claim their independence. It was a movement that marked a new era outside the confines of academic tradition.

At the heart of Secession were artists Gustav Klimt and his protégé and dear friend Egon Schiele. This exhibition provides an in-depth examination of images of extraordinary visual power: from the eroticism of Klimt’s mosaic-like works, to the anguished and raw work of the young Schiele in his magnetic nudes and contorted figures against the backdrop of nocturnal Vienna, full of masked balls and dreams imbued with sexuality.
