Vienna secession

DEFINITION

Formed in 1897 by a group of Austrian artists, it was also known as the Union of Austrian Artists. Gustav Klimpt was the first president, and other members included Otto Wagner, Josef Engelhart, Egon Schiele, Max Fabiani, Josef Hoffmann and Koloman Moser. The group was not linked by a style, but only by commitment to non-conservatism and the motto: "To every age its art and to art its freedom."
