Description

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!
