Gustav Klimt: 1862-1918 (Basic Art)by Gilles Neret
Synopses & Reviews
Gustav Klimt's art expresses the apocalyptic atmosphere of Vienna's upper middle-class society - a society devoted to the cultivation of aesthetic awareness and the cult of pleasure. His fame, however, rests on his reputation as one of the greatest erotic painters and graphic artists of his time.
