The Influence of the Vienna School of Art History II

We cordially invite you to the conference The Influence of the Vienna School of Art History II: The 100th Anniversary of Max Dvořák’s Death which takes place on 15-16 April 2021 online.

The year 2021 will mark 100 years since the death of the Czech-born Viennese art historian Max Dvořák (1874–1921). After he moved from the university in Prague to Vienna University in 1894, he went on to become one of the most eminent art historians in early 20th-century Central and Eastern Europe, transforming the method of the Vienna School of Art History when the region was at the start of a new political order, and with an influence on art history comparable to that of his contemporaries Aby Warburg or Heinrich Wölfflin. He became an associate professor at the University of Vienna in 1905 and a full professor in 1909. Researching the influence of his thinking on art history a century after his premature death is therefore crucial in order to obtain a better understanding of the Central and Eastern European art-historical phenomenon known as the Vienna School of Art History.

The languages of the conference will be German and English.

The conference is held online on Zoom. Registration will take place via e-mail: Unregistered participants will be able to watch the conference online on Facebook of the Institute of Art History of the Czech Academy of Sciences.
