  • “In every way an indispensible contribution to research… brilliant foldouts provide large views, while individual enlargements grant fascinating insight into the detail.”

    — Kunstchronik, Munich
  • “Guaranteed to work up a fervour.”

    — Harpers Bazaar, London
  • Gustav Klimt: The Complete Paintings is a grand production in every way: the most comprehensive book on Klimt’s art, the most up-to-date information, the most profuse detail illustrations and the most carefully designed book on its topic. Its grand size matches the ambition of its publisher. The reprinting of this lavish book once again makes available a publication that is both attractive and a serious piece of scholarship and analysis. Gustav Klimt: The Complete Paintings is a magnificent publishing achievement and allows the ordinary person to come as close to possible to actually owning a Klimt painting. With its large colour reproductions of details, one can get closer to the paintings than is possible in a museum. This opulent book is the perfect embodiment of the art of Klimt. This is a book he would have been proud of.”

  • "Gustav Klimt is perhaps best known for his use of gold leaf in intricate paintings. His life’s work is still celebrated today for the beauty, sense of sorrow and passion that he was able to capture in a single portrait. It has been 150 years since Klimt’s birth and the launch of his complete works reveals his ideas and creative genius in one impressive volume."

    — The Mayfair Magazine, London

Suzy Menkes

“Surely TASCHEN’s Klimt: The Complete Paintings. Each unfolding page — with its strokeable surface of intense paintwork and its meld of Byzantine imagery and Venetian mosaics — brings to life the exotic eroticism of an exceptional artist.”
