Vienna is marking 100 years since the death of a string of luminaries from its fin-de-siecle glory days with an avalanche of exhibitions of modernist art, design and architecture that still inspire and shock today.It also saw artists Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele and Koloman Moser and architect Otto Wagner pass away.The Leopold kicked off the anniversary year this month with the first of its six special exhibitions focusing on Klimt, Moser, Richard Gerstl and Oskar Kokoschka.It also showcases examples of classic 1900-era design such as furniture, artisan craftwork and posters created by Moser and others in the Wiener Werkstaette community of artists that he co-founded.Vienna's thriving Jewish community were big drivers in the city's flourishing intellectual, scientific and artistic scene, not least in buying up artworks to fill their homes.
