A stunning monograph on the life and work of Austrian artist Gustav Klimt; it includes several recently-discovered love letters written by the Klimt, family pictures as well as famous and less famous drawings and paintings and by the artist. This elegant book takes a thorough look at Klimt's relationship with his family and his sentimental attachments, examining the start of his career at Vienna's School of Applied Arts as well as his love of theater and music. The book also includes works by his brothers Ernst and Georg, Klimt's youthful portraits of his own family members, as well as original photographs from the artist s bequest. The entire season of the Kunstler-Compagnie is covered, up to the death of Ernst Klimt in 1891. Three of his finest portraits of women Lady by the Fireplace and the two Portraits of a Lady which Klimt painted between 1894 and 1898, provide an in-depth understanding of his forays into the first genre and also illustrate the artist's special relationship with the female sex. Several recently-discovered love letters that Klimt addressed to Emilie Floge furnish an intimate glimpse of the artist's romantic attachments.
