Exhibition catalogue City of Women, Female Artists in Vienna from 1900 to 1938, presented at the Belvedere Museum, Vienna, Austria (until May 19, 2019).

Their names, however, are largely unknown today, and their masterpieces relegated to footnotes in history. Artists such as Elena Luksch-Makowsky, Helene Funke, Erika Giovanna Klien, Ilse Bernheimer, Maria Cyrenius, Friedl Dicker, Marie Egner, and Louise Fraenkel-Hahn are profiled in this book, along with vibrant reproductions of their works.

The remarkable stories of how many of these women found their way to Vienna from Germany, Russia, and beyond are enhanced by explorations of their contributions to such movements as Atmospheric Impressionism, Secessionism, Expressionism, Kineticism, and New Objectivity.

This book shows how the ingenuity and perseverance of these artists enabled them not only to carve out a place alongside their more renowned male peers, but also to create their own associations and exhibitions and become a pivotal part of the Viennese Modernism movement.
