Visiting "Wally" at the Leopold Museum

theartVIEw visits "Wally" by Egon Schiele at the Leopold Museum two days after her return from NYC. The small picture is now hanging side by side with her counterpart, a selfportrait by the artsist and a text gives a short overview about the original owner Lea Bondi Jaray and the history during the nazi reign and after the war, Some memorabilities about Wally Neuzil are also on display and of course more Schieles are shown in the next rooms together with the death mask of the artist, dying at the age of only 28 of the Spanish flu in 1918.

Zwei Tage nach ihrer Rückkehr besucht theartVIEw "Wally" im Leopold Museum. Das Bild hängt jetzt wieder mit dem dazugehörigen "Selbstportrait mit Lampionfrüchten" im großen Saal. Ein erklärender Text informiert über die Provenienz und Geschichte des Bildes. Die Transportkiste und einige Memorabilen über Wally Neuzil ergänzen die Schau.
