The photographic collection of the Arnold Schönberg Center in Vienna
Owing to the complexity of his intellectual physiognomy, Schönberg has come to represent an epoch marked by upheaval in the artistic, political, and social spheres, lending an identity by virtue of his historical authority. His powerful image lies at the focus of this publication, with a representative selection of photographic items from Arnold Schönberg’s Estate. The pictures allow an impressive reconstruction of Schönberg’s life amid the checkered history of the 20th century and also illustrate the development of photography during a time span of 70 years.
