Klimt and Napoleon for Melbourne

Article content

9 September 2010

Minister for the Arts, Peter Batchelor, today announced the next two installments of the highly successful Melbourne Winter Masterpieces Series - Vienna: Art & Design, Klimt, Schiele, Hoffmann in 2011, and in 2012, Napoleon: Revolution to Empire.

"Like all Melbourne Winter Masterpieces exhibitions, both Vienna: Art & Design and Napoleon will be exclusive to Melbourne, and I am confident that like their predecessors, they will prove to be significant tourism and economic drawcards.

"With each exhibition, our international reputation grows and we strengthen our capacity to attract and present works from more of the world’s great institutions," he said.

Vienna: Art & Design, which will be part of the NGV’s 150th anniversary celebrations in 2011, will showcase an outstanding collection of some 240 works by the greatest Viennese artists, designers and architects of the 19th and 20th centuries.

Then, in 2012, Napoléon: Revolution to Empire will bring more than 200 works from late 18th and early 19th century France, including paintings, watercolours, drawings, engravings, sculpture, furniture, textiles, porcelain, glass, gold and silver, fashion, jewellery and armour.

Victoria has developed an ‘enviable track record of delivering highly popular major international exhibitions’ including The Impressionists: Masterpieces from the Musée d’Orsay and Salvador Dalí: Liquid Desire. To date, the Melbourne Winter Masterpieces series has been enjoyed by more than 2.4 million people over the traditionally quieter winter months.

Vienna: Art & Design, Klimt, Schiele, Hoffmann will be on display at NGV International from 18 June to 9 October 2011. Napoléon: Revolution to Empire will follow in winter 2012.
