Art exhibitions between Austria and Italy: a look at 2022

Until 27 March the exhibition “Klimt, the Secession and Italy” will continue to enchant visitors with the works of the Viennese master – many of which come from the Belvedere in Vienna, curator Franz Smola – exhibited at Palazzo Braschi in Rome. In the meantime, other Italian and Austrian cities will enter into art dialogues: from February 23, “Titian and the image of woman”, a major exhibition organized in collaboration with the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna, will arrive from Vienna at the Royal Palace in Milan. by Sylvia Ferino.

Speaking of Titian we are talking about Venice. The Belvedere will dedicate “Viva Venezia” to Venice and the myth of the lagoon city from 17 February in the rooms of the newly restored Lower Belvedere. At the Venice Biennale the Austrian pavilion will be animated by the multimedia installations “Invitation of the Soft Machine and Her Angry Body Parts” by Jakob Lena Knebl and Ashley Hans Scheirl (curator Karola Kraus).

Again at the Belvedere in Vienna the focus will be on Rome and Naples with an exhibition of the works of Joseph Rebell. This is the first exhibition dedicated exclusively to this artist, born in Vienna in 1787 who, starting from 1813, worked in Italy for several years. In Naples he was part of the “Posillipo School”. His paintings were held in high esteem among painting enthusiasts of the time throughout Europe, and after his return to Vienna, Rebell was called by Emperor Francis I to direct the Belvedere Imperial Painting Gallery.
