* Gustav Klimt (Baumgarten, now part of Vienna), July 14, 1862 – Vienna, February 6, 1918) was an Austrian symbolist painter, muralist and illustrator. He is the most prominent member of the Vienna Secession, of which he was also president for some time. Characteristic for his later works, which earned him the most fame, is the decorative ornamentalism (in which he often used gold leaf) and the suggestive-erotic symbolism. He mostly gained fame with his portraits of women and allegoric works, but he also painted a large number of landscapes. Klimt's art was born during an artistic flourishing in the Vienna of the belle époque and is often associated with the Jugendstil movement and Art Nouveau. His oeuvre is considered exemplary for the then tension field between conservation and the urge for progress. [Source: Wikipedia]
