Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Vienna of the Belle Epoque ? of Sigmund Freud, Otto Wagner, Mahler and Schönberg ? has prompted the admiration of the whole world for the quality and diversity of its cultural and artistic life. And Gustav Klimt (1862–1918) was without doubt its defining and most fascinating painter.

As a highly gifted student he decorated the walls of the Burgtheater, the staircase of the Art History Museum, the University of Vienna and the Stoclet Palace. As an art revolutionary he headed the Secession of 1897, reacting against official world of academia and bourgeois conservatism.

Cloaked in richly woven patterns of gold or silver, in mosaics, exotic designs, fairy-tale illustrations of birds and animals, ornamental or floral motifs, mystical whirls or kaleidoscopes of radiant colours, Klimt's seductive portrayals of nudity plumb the secrets of the unconscious and the labyrinths of the mind. He confronted the public with his own unwavering sensuality and the omnipresence of Eros in the workings of the world, creating the true erotic prelude to modern sexuality ? of which Expressionism and Surrealism were to make such arresting use.

Synopsis:

Sixteen of the artist's most famous works in miniature format, among them Water Snakes II, The Kiss, Judith I, Country Garden, The Girlfriends, Adele Bloch-Bauer II, Lady with Hat and Feather Boa, 9 others.

Synopsis:

A book wth a spine containing 14 prints of 'golden and erotic' illustrations by one of the most outstanding figures in Viennese Modernism.
