This tour invites guests to check out the pictorial art collection of one of the main Austrian museums, to take a closer look at the canvases by Monet and Renoir, Malevich, and Kandinsky, and to find answers to the exciting questions raised by modernism and avant-garde.

What to expect?

  • Impressionism and expressionism, cubism and fauvism—it looks like the history of art is trying to confuse observers with an abundance of various ‘-isms’. Nevertheless, Monet’s "Water Lilies" need no commentary; they are capable of making an impression on their own.

  • I invite you to check out the pictorial art collection of one of the main Austrian museums, to take a closer look at the canvases by Monet and Renoir, Malevich, and Kandinsky, and to find answers to the exciting questions raised by modernism and avant-garde.

  • During this excursion, we won’t study the biographies of prominent artists or try to memorize the conceptual foundations of their art. We will try to take pleasure in the pictures themselves and from the disavowal of the art theorists’ intricacies.

  • In the exposition of Batliner’s collection, we’ll talk about the works of art that caused contentious debate but are no longer deemed shocking nowadays. We will start with Monet’s "Roses" and travel to Picasso’s "Woman With Green Hat", dropping by at the branches of European modernism and Russian avant-garde and discussing the issues that actually help the observer to find their own approach to understanding art.
