A WITNESS TO A CENTURY AND HER ROLES
14th October 2022–27Th February 2022
The Leopold Museum is dedicating the first comprehensive exhibition to the celebrated star of the film and theater Tilla Durieux (1880–1971). Durieux was a modern woman of the 1920s who was politically active and whose roles were as varied as the list of artists who portrayed her – among them Auguste Renoir, Lovis Corinth, Franz von Stuck, Max Slevogt, August Gaul, Emil Orlik, Ernst Barlach, Olaf Gulbransson, Max Oppenheimer, Oskar Kokoschka, Frieda Riess, Charley Toorop, Sasha Stone, Lotte Jacobi and Mary Duras. The presentation Tilla Durieux. A Witness to a Century and Her Roles is the first to explore the fascination the Vienna-born and Berlin-based actress held already for her contemporaries, and to follow the traces of this scintillating personality through portraits of all media.
