Friedrich König was a multi-talented artist, one of the founding members of the Vienna Secession, a progressive, modern movement aiming to unite artists and designers of very different fields.
Our painting dates from circa 1900, that is from the early and most valued years of the Secession (1897 – 1905), before Gustav Klimt and an important number of members left. In 1901, that is probably one year after he painted our painting, Friedrich König and of course Gustav Klimt each decorated walls of the Vienna Secession Building with their painted Beethoven friezes.
