Gustav Klimt : Drawings & Watercolours, Hardback Book

Gustav Klimt : Drawings & Watercolours Hardback

Description

There can be no doubt about Klimt's greatness as a draughtsman.

Remarkable above all is the intensely sensual mood that he establishes in his limpid, fluid drawings and watercolours.

Rainer Metzger brings together hundreds of Klimt's works on paper in a way that enriches our knowledge of the artist and enhances the visual impact of his oeuvre.

Many revolve around Klimt's taboo-breaking main themes - the naked woman, erotica and homoerotica - while others provide allegorical and historical insights.

Between these two poles lie Klimt's elegantly direct preparatory sketches and studies, tirelessly and manically executed - frameworks that would lay the foundations for his paintings.

This book is a fitting testament to a hitherto neglected aspect of Klimt's art, which is as complex and contradictory as the times in which it was made and as the man who made it.
