Café Interior, Vienna Photographed about 1932
The location of this café is something of a mystery, although it clearly evokes the comfortable self-containment that many historians have argued was a defining feature of Viennese modernity. The city’s celebrated café culture was at once a refuge from a difficult world and also a space where individuals could linger for hours, talk, write and read a selection of newspapers. If there is something unusual about Tudor-Hart’s view, it is that she shows a public space, often associated with male artists and intellectuals, as dominantly occupied by women.
