Gustav Klimt Summary


In this arresting volume the author discusses his paintings' frank eroticism and elaborate decorations against the background of Klimt's sensational life. She introduces readers to turn-of-the-century Vienna, a hotbed of cultural conflict and aesthetic awakening. She shows how Klimt's volatile relationship with the Viennese art world, run-ins with the law, and irrepressible sensuality shaped the artist's career. The author also considers Klimt's innovative techniques and novel approach to portraiture as well as his philosophy of painting. Finally the author reveals how a resurgent interest in Klimt's life is fuelling further debate about the roles of eroticism and fashion in the art world of today.
