    Gustav Klimt's Last Works: until February 13th, 2022

    In a special exhibition planned for 1 year, the Belvedere Museum presents unique late works by Gustav Klimt. Among them are the works "Lady with Fan" and "The Bride". They were the last two paintings that the artist left in his studio at his death in 1918. Now, more than 100 years, several owners and journeys to other continents later, these unfinished works are together again for the first time for the public to see in Vienna.

    Johann Jakob Hartmann: until August 29th, 2021

    Thanks to restoration work at the Belvedere, the "four elements" of earth, fire, water and air in Hartmann's version can once again be seen side by side. Some of his works were already exhibited in the imperial gallery in the 18th century. The artist was one of the first in the Bohemian region to specialize in the art of landscape painting and oriented himself to Flemish masters such as Jan Brueghel the Elder. Please pay attention to the details in his paintings!

    Andy Warhol Exhibits. A glittering Alternative: until May 30th, 2021

    Andy Warhol is one of the most famous personalities of the 20th century. Like no other artist since 1945, he has integrated the everyday experiences of the consumer and media world into his art. At the same time he showed the consumer society the abysses of this world. Visitors are shown a glimpse behind the world-famous Pop Art icon, who was also a pioneering exhibition curator, installation artist and commercial artist.
