GUSTAV KLIMT 1862-1918

Klimt was one of the most innovative and controversial artists of the early 20th century. In the 1880’s and 1990’s he produced murals for many Viennese public buildings but his style became increasingly experimental. Critics attacked him for his use of unusual imagery and his bold decorative style. Klimt was one of the founding members of the Vienna Secession formed to challenge the conservatism of the Vienna Academy of Arts. He created a new and highly individual style in the Austrian art world, breaking with the conventional academic ideals.

Klimt’s work was influenced by European avant-garde movements he combined decorative patterns with symbolism, allegory and erotic content. His later work is especially defined by the use of intensive colors, golden backgrounds, ornamental layouts, erotic elements and heavy symbolism. Although his work was controversial, he had a strong influence on the cultural world of his time and established himself as a very popular painter in the Viennese society.
