Make Me Look Beautiful, Madame D’Ora!

The story of Madame D’Ora and her iconic photography portraits on view at the Leopold Museum.

An exhibition of the wonderful iconic works of Madame D’Ora at the Leopold Museum presents the female powerhouse who captured the great names of the 20th century’s world of art and fashion, aristocracy and politics in her photographs. The first artist photographed by her was Gustav Klimt in 1908, the last Pablo Picasso in 1956. Within only a few months, the Atelier d’Ora had established itself as the most elegant and renowned studio for artistic portrait photographs and her images were widely disseminated through numerous newspapers and magazines in Austria and abroad. Her fascinating life of struggle and beauty is traced through her work and shows the unique arc from the last Austrian monarch, via the glamour of the Paris fashion world in the 1920s and 30s to a Europe entirely changed after World War II. An exhibition not to be missed!
