Vienna Secession1


Published on


Thank you!
The Kirche am Steinhof (also called the Church of St. Leopold) in Vienna is the Roman Catholic oratory of the Steinhof Psychiatric Hospital. The building designed by Otto Wagner is considered one of the most important Art Nouveau churches in the world.
The Vienna Secession (also known as the Union of Austrian Artists, or Vereinigung Bildender Künstler Österreichs) was formed in 1897 by a group of Austrian artists who had resigned from the Association of Austrian Artists, housed in the Vienna Künstlerhaus. This movement included painters, sculptors, and architects. The first president of the Secession was Gustav Klimt, and Rudolf von Alt was made honorary president. Its official magazine was called "Ver Sacrum". The three main architects of this movement were Josef Hoffmann, Joseph Maria Olbrich, and Otto Wagner. Although Otto Wagner is widely recognised as an important member of the Vienna Secession he was not a founding member.
