The son of a Viennese engraver, the painter Gustav Klimt (Austrian, 18621918) became a leader of the Sezession (Secession), an association of artists founded in 1897 to challenge the prevailing academic conservatism prevalent in turn-of-the-century Vienna. A late flourishing of the school of Symbolism, Klimts work displays a deep fascination with both the productive and destructive forces of female sexuality. His highly ornamental style reveals the close connection between Symbolism and parallel movements in the decorative arts, such as Art Nouveau. 16-month calendar with 13 full-color photographs.
