Out of the Dark

The decades between 1918 and 1938 were a period of transition in Austria. Having barely realised the demise of the Habsburg Empire, the country drifted straight into an autocratic regime and further on to fascism and another global war.

“Menschheitsdämmerung” (Twilight of Humanity) is the title of a Leopold Museum’s exhibition presenting the oeuvre of Gerhart Frankl, Josef Dobrowsky and nine other artists. Featuring the sinister portrait of countryside poverty by Albin Egger-Lienz but also Herbert Boeckl’s timeless colourfulness, this selection is much more than just an addition the Viennese gallery’s outstanding permanent exhibit.
