VIENNA. The Belvedere is devoting the fourteenth exhibition in the series Masterpieces in Focus to the fascinating and versatile fin-de-siecle artist Max Kurzweil (1867-1916). His biography reads rather like inspiration for a novella from Vienna around 1900 and his work, which ranged from Impressionism to Symbolism and even Expressionism, is a testament to a particularly passionate temperament, announced belvedere.at.
