The young artist, who in 1909 founded the so-called new art group, wanted to break in line with secessionist movements with the rigid traditions of academic art. Co-founder was also Egon Schiele, born on 06.12.1890 in Tullin, who had studied at the Vienna Academy from 1906 to 1909.

His early work bears impressionistic trains and shows the influence of Gustav Klimt's Vienna Art Nouveau patterns, but flowing from 1910 in his painting increasingly expressionistic coatings. Especially the girls are acts of provocative sensual eroticism which are contrary to the former moral understanding, and in 1912 earned him a short prison. When he turned more to a tectonic composition, cityscapes and landscapes in his subject were increased. Never exude cheerfulness, but are symbols of transience and death. The Artist's mood is expressed vehemently with them, as he would identify with them.

The inner life of his models looked to illustrate Egon in the portraits. With them the artist had great acclaim. Again emerged paraphrases central works by Gustav Klimt, Vincent van Gogh and Auguste Rodin. In 1915, Egon Schiele had to do war service and put these experiences in more realistic and accurate detail images. He died on 31.10.1918 of the Spanish flu.

Schiele's works are considered the most important link between art nouveau and Expressionism and achieve record prices at international auctions. The most important collection of Schiele in the world is located in the Leopold Museum, Vienna

Collective term for all casting processes that ars mundi carries out with the help of specialized art foundries.

Cast stone
Equivalent of artificial marble, with the difference that the substitute stone in powder form is used instead of marble powder.

Cold cast bronze
Bronze powder bound by a polymer. By special polishing and patination techniques the surface of the casting gets a look that corresponds to the bronze.

ARA wooden copy
In order to guarantee absolute fidelity to the original, an artificially manufactured imitation wood is used as a base material which has typical wood characteristics: density, workability, color and surface structure.

Ceramic casting
As a rule castable clay is used in ceramic casting, which then is fired and possibly glazed. Plaster molds are often used instead of the usual rubber molds in ceramic casting and in porcelain production.

Bronze casting
In this case, the thousand-year-old lost-wax technique is used. It's the best, but also the most complex method of producing sculptures.

A plastic work of sculptural art made of wood, stone, ivory, bronze or other metals.

While sculptures from wood, ivory or stone are made directly from the block of material, for bronze casting a working model is prepared at first. Usually it is made of clay or other easily shaped materials.

The prime time of sculpture after the Roman antiquity was the Renaissance. Impressionism gave a new impulse to the sculptural arts. Also the contemporary artists, such as Jorg Immendorf, Andora, and Markus Lupertz enriched the sculpture with outstanding works.

Artistic movement that replaced the Impressionism in the early 20th century.

Expressionism is the German form of the art revolution in painting, graphics and sculpture, which found its precursor in the works of Paul Cézanne, Vincent van Gogh and Paul Gauguin in the late 19th century. The Expressionists tried to advance to the basic elements of painting. With vibrant, unbroken colors in large areas and with the emphasis on line and the resulting targeted suggestive expressiveness they fought against the artistic taste established by bourgeoisie.

The most important representatives of Expressionism were the founders of "Die Brücke" (The Bridge): Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Erich Heckel, Karl Schmidt-Rottluff, Max Pechstein, Otto Mueller and Franz Marc, August Macke, among others.

Masters of Viennese Expressionism are Egon Schiele and Oskar Kokoschka.

The Fauvism is the French form of Expressionism.
