  • Artist: Gustav Klimt

    Gustav Klimt (July 14, 1862-February 6, 1918) was an Austrian symbolist painter and a formative figure of international Modernism that emerged at the turn of the century. Klimt was also one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Secession, a group that worked to support young, emerging, unconventional artists while claiming no single artistic manifesto or style. Klimt is noted for his paintings, murals, sketches, and other art objects. Though he received public commissions in his early years in Vienna, Klimt's work was met with criticism and rejection. Perceived as pornographic and radical, Klimt's treatment of the female body as his primary subject matter was at times openly erotic, but is now considered masterful. In the first decade of the twentieth century, Klimt entered what is known as his Golden Phase, which was marked by positive critical reaction and success. Many of his paintings from this period (which derived its name from the prominent use of gold leaf in his paintings) are considered beacons of the Art Nouveau period.

  • Artwork Details

    A beautiful exemplar of Gustav Klimt's fusion of art nouveau styles, symbolism, eroticism, and allegory, his 1913 oil on canvas The Virgin is one of the prizes of the National Gallery in Prague. The intertwined figures and vivid colors contrast the serene facial expressions of the reclining beauties. With the original painting at almost 6 feet by 6 feet, Klimt's work leaves an impression not to be forgotten.
