Program Description


Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) was an Austrian Symbolist painter and one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Secession movement. Klimt is noted for his paintings, murals, sketches, and other "objets d'art." Klimt's primary subject was the female body and his works are marked by a frank eroticism. Among the artists of the Vienna Secession, Klimt was the most influenced by Japanese art and its methods.
