In the summer of 2010, the Leopold Museum will be joining with Institut Mathildenhöhe Darmstadt to mount the most comprehensive exhibition to date on the oeuvre of Joseph Maria Olbrich (1867-1908). This large-scale retrospective is to present around 300 individual works by this architect and universal artist, thereby putting Olbrich’s oeuvre into the aesthetic context of Viennese Modernism. The works on loan from public and private collections in Germany and Austria are to include furniture, textiles, drawings and watercolors.

Per l’estate del 2010, il Leopold Museum di Vienna, in collaborazione con l’Institut Mathildenhöhe di Darmstadt, ha allestito la più importante mostra mai organizzata sull’opera di Joseph Maria Olbrich (1867-1908).

Provenienti da collezioni pubbliche e private in Austria e Germania, le opere in mostra includono arredi, tessili, disegni e acquarelli.
