Discover the shimmering and sensual oeuvre of Gustav Klimt (Austrian, 1862-1918), the Austrian symbolist painter who polarized the art world by combining decorative finesse with erotic thrill. From landscape paintings to glistening renderings of the female body, the founding member of the Vienna Secession continues to fascinate with his works of mosaic-like patterns. The unfading popularity of Gustav Klimt attests not only to the particular appeal of his luxuriant painting but also to the universal themes with which he worked: love, feminine beauty, aging, and death.
