Klimt: The Collection of the Wien Museum

The Collection of the Wien Museum

ISBN: 9783775733618 (HB - E)

In celebration of the 150th birthday of Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) the Vienna Museum is presenting the first catalogue of its complete collection of the artist s works. The world s largest collection of Klimt s drawings around 400 provides an overview of thematic groups such as the Secession, sketches of the Faculty Paintings, or the nudes. In addition the book features a few paintings, including the portrait of Emilie Flöge (1902). It is one of Klimt s most famous paintings, and the first portrait of a woman in which the ornamentation in and of itself becomes a focal point. Last, but not least, there posters and prints that Klimt designed for the Viennese Secession, including a number of original drafts, as well as the first prints. The collection also contains unique memorabilia, such as the artist s smock, his death mask, and even a drawing by Egon Schiele of Klimt s body. Also featured are rare vintage prints of early portrait photographs and sculptures.
