VIENNA ART AND ARCHITECTURE

EDITED BY ROLF TOMAN    Book Number: 86280    Product format: Hardback

A simply beautiful 2018 outsize glamorous coffee table book comprising hundreds of specially commissioned colour photographs of architecture and interiors such as views of palaces not usually open to the public. Of all the large cities in Europe, the art metropolis Vienna, capital of Austria, is famous for its music and theatre, architecture and fine arts all within a relatively small space. Most are located in the traditional historic First District and the old city centre presents itself like a huge open-air museum. Buildings from the Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, and Rococo eras as well as Classicism and various embodiments of Historicism can all be found alongside Art Nouveau and Modernism, right up to present day architecture. The Baroque age was embodied by the famed architect Johann Lucas von Hildebrandt. Architects such as Otto Wagner, Josef Hoffmann and Adolf Loos were designing their projects in the early 1800s influenced by artists like Klimt, Kokoschka and Schiele. Here are the magnificent church buildings and palaces including the Hosburg, Schönbrunn, revivalism with architectural highlights on the new Ringstrasse, the Wiener Werkstätte and the Suzession. Insightful essays on the beginnings of the history of art in Vienna and on the state of contemporary Viennese art round off the book. An extraordinary gallery and armchair travel guide for all who appreciate art, fine architecture, and exquisite photography. 452 very large pages, heavyweight glossy paper fitting this gorgeous H.F. Ullmann publication. Index of names, place and object index and photo credits.
