Gustav Klimt was the great master of the Viennese variant of the Art Nouveau movement known as "Jugenstil". His beautiful, ornamental, and often gilded paintings, as well as his remarkable depictions of women, have made him world famous. A part from his decorative Art Nouveau work, he made a great many refined drawings, mainly featuring highly sensual female nudes. The milieu and achievements of this remarkable artist are portrayed by highlighting: -- Vienna as a "total artwork" -- Jugenstil painting and Symbolism -- The heroic years of the Vienna Secession -- The celebrated Beethoven Frieze -- The Kiss, theme and variations -- The Femme fatale Owing to the richness of his palette and the stark drama of his paintings, Klimt's popularity continues. With handsome color reproductions and a comprehensive text, this volume is a tribute to an artist who continues to engage, surprise, and fascinate us.

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 at Home explores the influences of Vienna and other places Klimt travelled to and called home on his life and work. Klimt was one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Secession movement. He was both influenced by and shaped the city of Vienna at the turn of the century, undertaking several public commissions. Klimt travelled little, but trips to Venice and Ravenna, as well as annual summer holidays with the Flöge family on the shores of Attersee, were a source of inspiration and influence on his creative output. Fully illustrated, the book features paintings, archive imagery and photographs of the surrounding city and landscape to provide an insight into how the people and places of his life relate to his work.

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.

Gustav Klimt, one of the great painters of fin de siècle Austria—and the subject of Helen Mirren’s latest film, Woman in Gold—takes center stage in this passionate and atmospheric debut novel, which reimagines the tumultuous relationship between the Viennese painter and Emilie Flöge, the woman who posed for his masterpiece The Kiss, and whose name he uttered with his dying breath. Vienna in 1886 was a city of elegant cafés, grand opera houses, and a thriving and adventurous artistic community. It is here where the twelve-year-old Emilie meets the controversial libertine and painter. Hired by her bourgeois father for basic drawing lessons, Klimt introduces Emilie to a subculture of dissolute artists, wanton models, and decadent patrons that both terrifies and inspires her. The Painted Kiss follows Emilie as she blossoms from a naïve young girl to one of Europe's most exclusive couturiers—and Klimt's most beloved model and mistress. A provocative love story that brings to life Vienna's cultural milieu, The Painted Kiss is as compelling as a work by Klimt himself.

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".
