Gustav Klimt (14 July 1862 - 6 February 1918) was an Austrian symbolist painter and one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Secession movement. Klimt is noted for his paintings, murals, sketches, and other art objects. Klimt's main subject was the female body and his works are characterized by a candid eroticism. As he developed a more personal style, his work was the subject of controversy that culminated when the paintings he completed around 1900 were criticized as pornographic in front of the ceiling of the Great Hall of the University of Vienna. Klimt's work had a major influence on his younger contemporary Egon Schiele.

This heliogravure will be sent safely packed between two pressed plates and insured with track and trace code.
