Ver sacrum: Organ der Vereinigung Bildener Künstler Österreichs
Ver sacrum, or Sacred Spring, was the official publication of the Vienna Secession. The title references an ancient religious rite, and speaks to the regenerative power of youth in exile. The Secessionists had come together in 1897 to oppose the Austrian art establishment and pursue a freer, experimental art. The journal is replete with original prints by Gustav Klimt (1862-1918), Koloman Moser (1868-1918), Josef Hoffmann (1870-1956), and others.
