"As wonderfully self-indulgent as Vienna itself" —Mature Times

"A lavish visual journey…comprehensive and exquisitely produced" —The Lady Books of the Year

At the turn of the 20th century, Vienna became an epicenter for new thought, increasingly running counter to the prevalent conservatism symbolized by the neo-classical facades of the buildings in the city’s Ringstrasse. During the time of the modernist movement led by Gustav Klimt, Josef Hoffmann, Koloman Moser, and others, a multidisciplinary environment emerged in which music, writing, and intellectual thought flourished, bringing different arts together in a “Gesamtkunstwerk” a total work of art.

Covering all artistic fieldsfrom painting to photography, the Wiener Werkstätte and decorative arts, fashion and architecture of fin-de-siècle Viennaand including biographies for featured artists, Vienna 1900 Complete is an unprecedented compilation of richly colored images curated and authored in a single volume by three leading scholars of the period.
