The Leopold Museum is a recent art museum in Vienna, opened in 2001. The Leopold Museum is located in the city centre in the new Museumsquartier (museum area of Vienna) The Leopold Museum exhibits paintings from the private collection of Rudolf Leopold, an ophthalmologist and art collector (born 1925 in Vienna, died 2010 also in Vienna).
Also worth seeing is the new, bright and modern building of the museum. Many highlights in the exhibition are by two artists. On the one hand there are many works by the painter Eugen Schiele (Austrians, 1890 to 1918, Expressionism). On the other hand, one can see art by Gustav Klimt (from Vienna, 1865 to 1918, Jugendstil) in the Leopold Museum. Of course you can also admire great paintings by other painters. Most of them are by Austrian artists and modern works of art.
