    Impressive Work About Klimt!

    The book is written in very interesting manner (I mean the language). It describes the main periods of Klimt's work and life, the cultural processes that took place in his contemporarity and his influence on them.
    The reproductions are awesome and well described and explained.
    Highly recommend :)

    Buy it!

    I can't say enough good things about this book. It's wonderful. Probably the best book I've found on Klimt yet. And for the price you just have to buy it.
