Art in Vienna

(Secession) inaugurated their new Gallery with their
second international exhibition.

The director of the above-named Museum, an
enthusiastic admirer of the English style of domes-
tic architecture and furniture, has given a fresh
impetus to the progress of our art industries, and
to the appreciation of the modern art movement
in general over here. That we have been sorely in
need of some such wholesome impetus there can-
not be the slightest doubt. Advocates of inde-
pendence and individuality scarcely ventured to
believe that modern art could ever make much
progress in this slow-going city. Now it is a fact.

It has been doubted, however, whether the
method employed to bring about this happy
change was the right one, and the only one
possible. For my own part I believe it was. The
majority, however, did not think so. There has
been a sharp controversy and considerable clashing
of opinions and interests, sesthetic as well as com-
mercial, during the last twelve months 'in Vienna,
portion or poster designed by j. m. olbrich with the result that the Archduke Rainer withdrew

his patronage from the Museum and the Kunst-

modern requirements, the
decorative sculptured pat-
terns which constituted the
charm of the beautiful
French furniture of the
last century.
