Otto Wagner: Drawings featured the most comprehensive selection of Wagner drawings ever exhibited in the United States. Otto Wagner (1841-1918), Vienna’s foremost architect at the turn of the century, is credited with taking the first steps in freeing architecture from a dependence on historical styles. Included in the exhibition are drawings that clearly document Wagner’s working method: freehand sketches, pencil drawings to scale, and final drawings in ink and watercolor.
The exhibition was organized by Otto Antonia Graf and August Sarnitz of the Academy of Fine Arts, Vienna.
