Additional Details

Only one other inscribed example located: Leopold Museum Library, Vienna.
Gustav Klimt's Austrian painter's union--variously called the Klimt Group, the Kunstschau Group, or the Bund östereischischer Künstler--organized the first Wiener Kunstschau in Vienna in 1908, during which Klimt's The Kiss was first exhibited. On Klimt's invitation, Egon Schiele's works were shown at the second Kunstschau in 1909, and again at the Kunstschau in 1916, which was held in Berlin as part of the Berliner Secession exhibition. Among Schiele's works in the 1916 Kunstschau was Entschwebung [Levitation]--a mysterious double-self-portrait.
