The exotic, sensuous paintings of Gustav Klimt recall the art of ancient civilisations - their patterns and ornamentation reminiscent of Byzantine mosaics and Egyptian murals with their gold leaf and shimmering colours. This beautifully illustrated book on the life and work of Klimt, one of the most influential artists of the Art Nouveau movement, describes how he first achieved fame as a decorative painter before turning to portraiture and erotic art. Chapters cover The Secession Years, Femmes Fatale, Landscapes and the Later Works and of course his abstract compositions with flattened, glowing surfaces embellished with gold and silver leaf. This technique is perhaps best identified in his two portraits of Adele Bloch Bauer. With features on key works and an easy-to-read timeline, 96 large quality pages, 23.5 x 28.8cm, glowing colour throughout. New full price.
