    At the turn of the 20th century, Vienna established itself as its center of power, and the multi-ethnic Habsburg Monarchy experienced a lively exchange of art and culture between Vienna and the cities such as Zagreb. The challenge of modernism: Vienna and Zagreb around 1900 is an exhibition held in Belvedere, Vienna, Austria in 2017:

    In the exhibition, the connections and points of reference at the start of the twentieth century are presented by key works of Austrian and Croatian artists of that period.
    Artists and architects who were trained in Vienna brought the new trends in art to Zagreb and, within 20 years, the overall character of cultural life at the time was fundamentally changed.

    The exhibition uses Delvard, which subtly plays with Vienna Secession and Croatian Art Nouveau styles. Austrian designer Manuel Radde designed the accompanying exhibition catalogue using a combination of Delvard for the main text and Delvard Display for titles, making good use of its many alternate glyphs.
