Gustav Klimt. Complete Paintings, Hardback Book

Gustav Klimt. Complete Paintings Hardback

Edited by Tobias G. Natter

Description

During his lifetime, Gustav Klimt was a controversial star whose works made passions run high.

He stood for Modernism but he also embodied tradition.

His pictures polarized and divided the art-loving world.

The press and general public alike were split over the question: For or against Klimt?

This monograph explores Klimt's oeuvre with particular emphasis upon such contemporary voices.

With a complete catalogue of his paintings, including new photographs of the Stoclet Frieze commissioned exclusively for this book, it examines the reactions to Klimt's work throughout his career.

Subjects range from Klimt's portrayal of women to his adoption of landscape painting.

The theory that Klimt was a man of few words who rarely put pen to paper is also dispelled with the inclusion of 179 letters, cards, writings, and other documents from the artist.Contributing authors: Evelyn Benesch, Marian Bisanz-Prakken, Rainald Franz, Anette Freytag, Christoph Grunenberg, Hansjoerg Krug, Susanna Partsch, Angelina Poetschner, and Michaela Reichel
