Gustav Klimt: From Drawing to Painting

Σύνοψη του βιβλίου "Gustav Klimt: From Drawing to Painting"

This lavish volume, available again after some years out of print, is the definitive presentation of the best of Klimt's exotic, ornate paintings, his dramatic and spontaneous sketches, and of the extraordinary milieu which fostered his gift. The author, who knew Klimt in his last years and is a noted Klimt scholar, uses original sources and a wealth of personal photographs to place Klimt in the context of the society which he both shocked and delighted.
