Paintings reproductions - Gustav Klimt
Gustav Klimt (born on 14 July 1862 in Baumgarten, today in Penzing, the 14th district of Vienna, died on 6 February 1918 in Vienna) used to say that there are only two painters in the world - Velazquez and he himself. Born in the artistic family, Gustav Klimt was constantly looking for a way out of the schematic, academic style. One of the main representatives of Art Nouveau, the precursor of Viennese modernism. The most important aim of Klimt's work was to create a work detached from all academic canons. His works have become a role model for many contemporary artists.
A curiosity is the painting by him Golden Adela, which has been hailed as the most expensive picture of those times. The author used gold and silver in flakes. It is the most expensive image sold at that time.
- A work of art as a purely aesthetic category,
- A gradual departure from the history of painting,
- excellent line handling and decorativeness
