Zemlinsky's new grave in the Central Cemetery in Vienna. At the instigation of the Alexander Zemlinsky Foundation, Josef Symon — artist in Prague and for many years professor at the Vienna Academy of Art — created a gravestone whose form is inspired by the letter "Z". The sculpture is divided into five parts and reflects the five stages of Zemlinsky's life.


Alexander Zemlinsky lived in Prague from 1911 to 1927. For his residence in the Ferona Palace, Havlickova 11, 11182 Praha 1, Josef Symon created a commemorative plaque, commissioned by the Alexander Zemlinsky Endowment Fund, which was unveiled in 2005.
