Defining Decadence

The legacy of Gustav Klimt
Fall under the spell of Gustav Klimt. Over a century after his death, Viennese artist Gustav Klimt (1862–1918) still startles with his unabashed eroticism, dazzling surfaces, and artistic experimentation. In this neat, dependable monograph, we gather all of Klimt's paintings alongside authoritative art historical commentary and privileged archival material from Klimt’s own archive to trace the evolution of his astonishing oeuvre.

With top-quality illustration, including new photography of the celebrated Stoclet Frieze, the book follows Klimt through his prominent role in the Secessionist movement of 1897, his candid rendering of the female body, and his lustrous “golden phase” when gold leaf brought a shimmering tone and texture to such beloved works as The Kiss and Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I, also known as The Woman in Gold.

Small but sumptuous

Brett, October 28, 2021
As a working artist books like this are a vital reference and inspiration. The small scale format makes them very affordable but the effort and quality put into the book belies the "budget" label. Whilst I will always look at TASCHEN's full scale Klimt books with a certain amount of longing, there is no way you can feel let down by the smaller books. The text is illuminating and well written and the artworks exceptionally well reproduced.

Classic must have!
