Klimt / Shiele - ★★★☆☆ - Until Feb 3, 2019


You are not going to be seeing the lush Klimt paintings that you are familiar with. This is an exhibition of drawings from the Albertina museum in Vienna. The contrast and comparison between the two artists who were 28 years apart in age but who both died in 1918 is intriguing. For us, the self-portraits by Shiele, lesser known of the two, were the highlight. The erotic works of both can still evoke complex responses and debate, and we thought the drawing ranged from awkward and to awe inspiring.
