The alluring art of Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) has fascinated art lovers for decades. His decorative style, jewel-like colors, and sensuous line seduce the eye and the mind. Beneath the surface beauty exists a passionate commitment not only to the progress of painting, but to its relevance for society, which has made him one of Austria's greatest modern artists. Comini discusses his portraits, allegories, and landscapes as separate facets, tracing the development of each. Her text is illustrated with documentary photos of Klimt and his associates as well as with comparative works of other artists. 48 color illustrations, 94 black-and-white illustrations.
