Ver sacrum

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference


This short‐lived but highly significant periodical, influenced by the German magazine Pan, was both a graphic showpiece and the principal mouthpiece of the Viennese Secession. It contained illustrations by the leading Viennese artist Gustav Klimt as well as illustrating the work of other key figures such as Josef Hoffmann, Koloman Moser, Joseph Olbrich, and theatre designer Alfred Roller. Its written contributions were also often by distinguished literary figures such as Rilke, Maeterlinck, and Verhaeren and even advertisements were striking realizations of the Secessionist style.
