Instrumental in the modern-design revolution that swept Vienna at the turn of the 20th century, Koloman Moser (1868–1918) worked across varied types of media, in both two and three dimensions. Join this 45-minute tour of the exhibition Koloman Moser: Designing Modern Vienna, 1897–1907 to learn about his art, which is often characterized by precise geometric styles and a black-and-white grid pattern.
