Up until today, Gustav Klimt has been labelled variously: revolutionary and modernist pioneer, compulsive pornographer, ladies’ man, enfant terrible for the conservative educated middle-class, and overrated painter of golden kitsch. For a number of years he has also been a significant protagonist in the contest for the most expensive paintings of all time.Today, almost 200 years after his death, it is difficult to decide between these various labels. In this first volume of the new series EDITION BELVEDERE, authors sketch a portrait of this unique artist, based on his works, letters, comments by his contemporaries, and a wealth of photos from the Klimt archive, some of which have never been shown before. Accompany the authors on this fascinatingly told life story!

Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) remains one of the most popular and influential artists of the 20th century. His ornate, sensual paintings, often charged with eroticism and embellished with gold, have been reproduced as bestselling posters, cards, and book jackets, familiar to many who know little of the artist who created them. Published to accompany a major exhibition at Tate Liverpool, Gustav Klimt explores the life and work of this unique and intriguing figure, who was at the epicenter of the cultural renaissance that swept Vienna at the turn of the last century. Central to the book is the first thorough examination of the relationship between Klimt’s paintings and mosaics and the work of architect Josef Hofmann, a close friend of the artist. The book also examines the all-inclusive design culture in Vienna that spanned clothing, jewelry, furniture, and interior design. Essays by leading critics concentrate on key works and key moments, including the foundation of the Vienna Secession; the exhibition of The Beethoven Frieze; and the collaborations with architects and designers in creating total artistic environments such as the the Palais Stoclet in Brussels. An essay on Klimt’s erotic works, particularly his drawings, examines his relationship with the women he portrayed. Lavishly illustrated to capture the intensity of Klimt’s palette, this volume is a fittingly sumptuous tribute to the achievement of a unique artistic innovator.

Gustav Klimt's art thoroughly 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. The ecstatic joy which Klimt and his contemporaries found - or hoped to find - in beauty was constantly overshadowed by death. And death therefore plays an important role in Klimt's art. Klimt's fame, however, rests on his reputation as one of the greatest erotic painters and graphic artists of his times. In particular, his drawings, which have been widely admired for their artistic excellence, are dominated by the erotic portrayal of women. Klimt saw the world "in female form".

Gustav Klimt's exotic, sensuous paintings recall the art of ancient civilizations - their patterns and ornamentation reminiscent of Byzantine mosaics and Egyptian murals. But from what context did these masterworks spring? This beautifully illustrated book is a guide to the life and work of Gustav Klimt. Klimt is one of the most influential artists of the Art Nouveau movement, first achieving fame as a decorative painter before turning to portraiture and erotic art. The decorative style persisted in his work, leading to abstract compositions with flattened, glowing surfaces embellished with gold and silver leaf. This technique is perhaps best identified in Klimt's two portraits of Adele Bloch Bauer The book serves as a perfect introduction to Klimt's work, showcasing a selection of his paintings as well as providing fascinating biographical detail. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Great Artists series by Arcturus Publishing introduces some of the most significant artists of the past 150 years, looking at their lives, techniques and inspirations, as well as presenting a selection of their best work.

Keen to learn but short on time? Find out everything you need to know about the life and work of Gustav Klimt in just 50 minutes with this straightforward and engaging guide! Gustav Klimt was one of the most influential artists of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and helped to revolutionise art in his native Austria through his leading role in the Viennese Secession movement. Works such as The Kiss are instantly recognisable due to their use of gold leaf; along with elements such as the use of mosaics, the incorporation of allegory into his work and the overt sensuality of his female figures, this helped to inaugurate a new, less conventional style of art in Europe. Although some of Klimt’s work caused a scandal and was dismissed as “pornographic” when it was first produced, his paintings were lauded abroad, and a number of them are now widely recognised as masterpieces. In this book, you will learn about: • The artistic landscape of 19th-century Austria and the emergence of the Vienna Secession • Klimt’s main works, including his iconic painting The Kiss, and the reception they received • His influence on later artists, including Egon Schiele and Friedensreich Hundertwasser ABOUT 50MINUTES.COM | Art & Literature The Art & Literature series from the 50Minutes collection aims to introduce readers to the figures and movements that have shaped our culture over the centuries.

Maria Altmann and her husband fled their homeland when the Nazi regime came to Austria and threatened their lives. They left their loved ones, their property, and everything that was in it--including their family’s artwork. Altmann eventually settled in the United States, but did not forget the past that was stolen from her. Several dozens of years later, Altmann had her day in court, and changed everything. Because of her will to reclaim what rightfully belonged to her family, museums worldwide were forced to give back artwork that had been stolen and looted. This book paints a new picture of how Holocaust survivors rebuilt and reclaimed the lives that were taken from them.
