"In 1898 the Emperor Franz Joseph celebrated fifty years on the Austrian throne. Twenty years later Austria's empire lay in ruins. In the space of those years, Vienna enjoyed a cultural golden age which was one of the most fruitful periods in the history of the arts in Europe. The artists themselves called it a 'sacred spring'. This book surveys the whole range of Vienna's artistic achievements during these years. The Sacred Spring is the first detailed and authoritative study of a period of remarkable artistic achievement and influence. Many of the photographs were specially taken for this book, and a number of the objects have never before been published." Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 3 lbs 8 oz.
