Description
Alfred Weidinger - Klimt - 2008
Art - Quantity: 1 - With slipcase - Book

Co-founder of the Viennese Secession at the beginning of the 20th century, Gustave Klimt became a major artist. His talent made him the “Prince of Painters” for Viennese society. This book focuses on the different aspects of the artist’s life and work.
The Stoclet Frieze, photographed especially for this book, was the subject of an in-depth study that enriches the reading of his work. His role as a theatre, palace and castle decorator has not been neglected; we find his creations among the 253 frescoes, paintings, preparatory sketches, and gorgeous watercolours reproduced in the book. These details give new depth to the works that we thought we perfectly understood.
This book was conceived of and written by a team of renowned specialists. It takes stock of the research devoted to the career and work of this world-renowned one-of-a-kind artist.
This stunningly illustrated large-size monograph pays tribute to this immense painter and grand Art Nouveau figure, who has his home port at the Belvedere Museum in Vienna.
