Previously on Equinoxio: L’Atelier des lumières (The Lights workshop) in Paris has put together a revolutionary presentation of Klimt’s (and Schiele’) art using light and technology. Above: “Kuntsschau Wien, 1908”. Kunst means Art. I suppose Schau means Show? (Help us out, our German or German-speaking friends). Fasten your seat belts. We are going back 110 years ago, in Vienna.
City lights. Who would have thought Vienna could be so colourful?
The public blends into the scenery.
Maybe the little girl sitting on the floor can tell us the name of the painting?
At the beginning there was only Light…
Then came Klimt. Here in 1887, age 25.
And Vienna met Egypt:
Through the woods came the Goddess:
Pallas Athena was her name. The Goddess of Wisdom. (Again?)
And Schiele was the Master’s pupil.
Judith, who decapitated Holofernes.
And they bowed to the Master.
They danced in the streets of Vienna. They knew not War was coming.
They laid down to rest.
And slumber came upon child and mother.

Thank you for joining us on Equinoxio’s quest. There may not be much Wisdom left, but Beauty is still there. Have a beautiful week-end.
