The Vienna Secession, founded in 1897, would shape a distinctive form of art in Vienna and all over the world. Gustav Klimt paints his own dreams: poet Hugo Hofmannsthal pens librettos for composer Richard Strauss; Otto Wagner and Josef Hoffman invent design; compatriot Sigmund Freud studies the interpretation of dreams; the young Egon Schiele studies painting and drawing. It's from this atmosphere of artistic, intellectual, and political effervescence that a world is born, notably through the search of a global art which evokes more particularly this wander through the Vienna of 1900.
