Gustav Klimt once said about himself: “There is nothing special about me. I am a painter who paints every day from morning to night. If you ever want to know something about me, you should take a close look at my pictures. ”In fact, Klimt, who liked to paint dressed only in sandals and a caftan, played a crucial role in the development of the Austrian art scene and is now one of the most famous painters in the country. His paintings, which can be attributed to Viennese Art Nouveau, are full of symbolism. His preferred theme was the female body and an open depiction of sexuality, which was considered provocative at the time. Klimt believed that there was something erotic about every form of art. He is said to have had numerous affairs, including with many of the clients he portrayed. However, he was always extremely discreet.

Klimt was born the second of seven children. The father was a moderately successful gold engraver, so the family lived in very poor conditions. At the age of 14, Klimt was able to enroll with a scholarship to the Vienna School of Applied Arts. His teachers included Victor Berger and Michael Rieser. He admired Hans Makart, one of the leading history painters of the 19th century. A year after his enrollment, his younger brother Georg Klimt also attended the school of applied arts. Together with their study friend Franz Matsch, the two brothers founded a studio community in 1888 and took on many orders for churches and other public buildings. Klimt's father and brother Ernst died in 1892. The sudden death of both and the financial responsibility he now had to bear with his family and that of his brother also affected Klimt's style. While his earlier works still showed some academic features, his later paintings became more modern and critical. The earliest work from Klimt's famous golden phase was "Pallas Athene". In the years that followed, gold was to play a central role and the dominant element of his works, as in the famous works “The Kiss” or “Adele Bloch-Bauer”.

The professional collaboration between Klimt and Matsch ended in 1894 when the two were commissioned to produce ceiling paintings for the new university in Vienna. Klimt's suggestions for the faculty pictures did not correspond to the conservative ideas and were strictly rejected because they were too pessimistic and too pornographic. Matsch's suggestions, however, were better received by the faculty members. Klimt's faculty picture “Philosophy” was awarded a gold medal at the Paris World Exhibition. In Vienna, however, they were not very impressed. As a consequence, Klimt left the cooperative of visual artists and became a founding member and first president of the Vienna Secession, which was supposed to be a platform for unconventional and international artists. Klimt had a stroke and died of pneumonia in the same year. © Meisterdrucke
