Overview

Gustav Klimt was a leader among the artists of the Viennese Secession in the early twentieth century. From his early decorative-arts beginnings, he became a leader of the Symbolist and Art Nouveau movements. He was a strong influence over his contemporaries, including Egon Schiele. With a comprehensive introduction, Essential Klimt looks in detail at all aspects of the art of Gustav Klimt, with detailed commentary on 120 of his works. Some of these are considered his most important pieces, while others may be less well-known, but they are equally essential to Klimt's artistic development and philosophy.
