Gustav Klimt. The Complete Paintings


Defining Decadence

The legacy of Gustav Klimt

During his lifetime, Gustav Klimt was a controversial star whose works made passions run high. He stood for Modernism but he also embodied tradition. His pictures polarized and divided the art-loving world. The press and general public alike were split over the question: For or against Klimt?

This monograph explores Klimt’s oeuvre with particular emphasis upon such contemporary voices. With a complete catalogue of his paintings, including new photographs of the Stoclet Frieze commissioned exclusively for this book, it examines the reactions to Klimt’s work throughout his career. Subjects range from Klimt’s portrayal of women to his adoption of landscape painting. The theory that Klimt was a man of few words who rarely put pen to paper is also dispelled with the inclusion of 179 letters, cards, writings, and other documents from the artist.

Contributing authors: Evelyn Benesch, Marian Bisanz-Prakken, Rainald Franz, Anette Freytag, Christoph Grunenberg, Hansjörg Krug, Susanna Partsch, Angelina Pötschner, and Michaela Reichel

Documentaire indispensable

Christophe,October 28, 2021
Une somme graphique et documentaire indispensable pour connaître et apprécier l'oeuvre si variée de Klimt.

A masterpiece

Javier,October 27, 2021
Even if you were to dislike Klimt's work (but who does?) there's no doubt that this is an impressive volume. The print quality is superb and most likely the closer you'll ever be to his oeuvre outside of a museum exhibit. A must have.
