Though controversial in his time, Gustav Klimt's works are today recognized as masterpieces. The Byzantine luxuriance of form, the vivid juxtaposition of colours and the rich symbolism, sensuality and eroticism of his work have made the artist one of the most popular in the world. In this lavish volume his most important and iconic works are arranged thematically, and are accompanied by Rachel Barnes' expert commentary on all aspects of the artist's life, influences and paintings - from the inspiration and provenance of each painting, to the technique used to create it and a list of exhibitions. Featuring some of the most iconic artworks of the late 19th/early 20th centuries - including Judith I, Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer and The Kiss - this sumptuous, hand-finished slipcase edition is a stunning object that any art lover would cherish.
