Going off in a little bit different direction than what we have done previously, the Leopold Museum is home to one of the largest collections of modern Austrian art, as well as the largest Egon Schiele collections in the world ( 40 paintings and over 200 works on paper and documents). Noted artists in this collection, in addition to Schiele, include Klimt, Gerstle, and Kokoschka. Vienna's art nouveau movement, known as the Jugendstil (or secessionists) became the interest of art lover Dr. Rudolf Leopold and his wife Elizabeth, collecting nearly 5000 items. The art works were consolidated in 1994, with help from the Republic of Austria and the National Bank of Austria and finally opened to the public in 2001.
