(Book - 1996)
An introduction to the work of Gustav Klimt.Gustav Klimt (1862 - 1918) was one of the most brilliant artists of the Austrian avant-garde. Admired for his sensual images of women and for his powerful and original vision, he produced some of the most haunting and evocative images of all time, including 'The Kiss', 'Love' and 'The Three Ages of Woman', all of which are included in this perfect introduction to the artist's work.A founder of the Vienna Secession, the band of artists who resigned from the established art bodies to form their own group, Klimt became the principal painter of the Art Nouveau movement, painting glittering portraits of fashionable Viennese society as well as startling and erotic allegories.Includes 83 illustrations, 48 in colour.

This is a magazine size book, which is a plus. However, the colour reproductions are mediocre. Still, a good recap for Klimt fans.
