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.

Arnold Schönberg was not an ambitious photographer, yet photography was his companion for many decades. Numerous snapshots from every-day life have been preserved in the composer’s Estate, and they provide an insight into Schönberg’s era, his personality and life history. For a special edition of individual copies, 100 removable and numbered art prints whose dimensions of 7 x 10 cm follow historical standard formats were selected from this collection and added to the publication “Arnold Schönberg in Focus.” Each copy therefore has a unique character.
