In 2018 we commemorate the 100th anniversary of death of two major artists of the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries – Gustav Klimt (1862–1918) and Egon Schiele (1890 –1918). The collections of the National Gallery in Prague house the key works by the two artists – the paintings The Virgin and Water Castle by Klimt and the Pregnant Woman and Death, Still Life with Flowers, Dead City and drawings Seated Nude and Seated Woman with Bent Knees by Schiele. The exhibition will put them in a context of the work by their well-known and half-forgotten contemporaries and followers on the Viennese art scene, such as Josef Hoffmann (1870–1956), Emil Orlik (1870–1932), Alfred Kubin (1877–1959), Carl Otto Czeschka (1878–1960), Richard Teschner (1879–1948), Oskar Kokoschka (1886–1980) and Max Oppenheimer (1885– 1954).
