Gustav Klimt : drawings and watercolours by Rainer Metzger( Book )

31 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in 8 languages and held by 852 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gustav Klimt the painter has always tended to overshadow Gustav Klimt the draughtsman. One of the most fascinating representatives of the Belle Epoque, Klimt is cherished for his rich use of ornament and his paintings of fin de siecle Viennese high society, which bring to life the decadence of the era through vibrant colours and patterns. Yet there can be no doubt about Klimt's greatness as a draughtsman." "Here, Rainer Metzger brings together hundreds of Klimt's works on paper in a way that enriches our knowledge of the artist and enhances the visual impact of his oeuvre. Many revolve around Klimt's taboo-breaking main themes - the naked woman, erotica and homoerotica - while others provide allegorical and historical insights. Between these two poles lie Klimt's elegantly direct and intoxicating preparatory sketches and studies tirelessly and manically executed - frameworks that would lay the foundations for his paintings."--Jacket

Gustav Klimt : the Ronald S. Lauder and Serge Sabarsky collections by Gustav Klimt( Book )

7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 511 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) was on of the gaints of twentieth-century art. As the fonder and first president of the Secession in 1897, Klimt was a central figure in the cultural life of Vienna's Golden Age and provided a crucial link between nineteenth-century Symbolism and Modernism. His sensual portrayals of women and richly patterened landscapes anticipated many of the formal advances of his peers. Klimt pushed the boundaries of artistic expression and developed a unique pictorial vocabulary, drawing from sources of the past to create a refined, delicate, highly evacative style. Klimit's work embodies the quintessence of fin de siècle Vienna"--Inside cover

A kiss cashes in Klimt between art and business( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although his contemporaries deemed Gustav Klimt's output "painted pornography suitable for pagan orgies," reproductions of his work are now booming in popularity. The Klimt Museum in Vienna sells an almost infinite variety of merchandise bearing his famous Kiss: along with the customary posters and coffee mugs, tourists can buy Klimt dog blankets, chocolates, Barbie dolls, umbrellas, and cookbooks. This program offers theories about why The Kiss is so well-suited to commercialization and contrasts Klimt's current success to the shocked reviews he garnered in his time. The video goes to the Klimt Museum; the Klimt Center, built to commemorate the site where the artist brought his mistresses; and a Klimt-themed nursing home in Vienna

Gustav Klimt, modernism in the making by Gustav Klimt( Book )

8 editions published in 2001 in English and French and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Klimt's artistic vision pushed the boundaries of art at the turn of the last century. His unparalleled ability to merge the decorative arts with painting led him to create brilliant and glittering works studded with jewel-like motifs; and his richly patterned landscapes and portrayals of embracing figures and elegant women are among the most spellbinding images in the history of art" "Gathered here are essays by eminent scholars Colin B. Bailey, Marian Bisanz-Prakken, Emily Braun, Jane Kallir, and Peter Vergo that explore the extent and context of the artist's oeuvre. The full-color plates are illuminated by individual commentaries and accompanied by black-and-white comparative illustrations. In addition, an illustrated chronology traces Klimt's life and the milieu in which he worked." "With nearly two hundred color plates of Klimt's most popular images, as well as rarely published drawings and period photographs, this lavish book, which accompanies a major exhibition organized by the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa, pays tribute to the unique style of this artist, one of the most important and revolutionary figures of the late nineteenth century."--Jacket

Vasily Kandinsky by Egon Schiele( Book )

8 editions published in 2008 in 4 languages and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume explores Russian painter and theorist Wassily Kandinsky's (1866-1944) life and career, from his radical work as the founder of the Blue Rider group and his escape from Weimar Germany to Paris, to his stormy love affair with the painter Gabriele Münter and his many friendships with leading artists of his generation. Color reproductions of Kandinsky's works are presented alongside photographs that document the tumultuous world he inhabited. Tracing the arc of Kandinsky's artistic development -- from his early landscapes and experiments with impressionism to his emergence as a pioneer in the field of abstract expressionism -- this beautifully designed volume celebrates Kandinsky's work through the lens of his extraordinary life
One hundred drawings by Gustav Klimt( Book )

5 editions published in 1972 in English and German and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gustav Glück, director of Vienna's Kunsthistorisches Museum, wrote as early as 1922 of Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) that his drawings were perhaps his ultimate artistic achievement. This founder of Secessionsstil and leader of the revolt against the Viennese academies was able to achieve greater freedom in his drawings than in his more laboriously executed paintings. While there are only about two hundred compleeted oils, the drawings number in the thousands, and are reported to have at times quite littered his studio. He himself considered them finished works, and often exhibited them alongside his paintings. Klimt's subject matter is almost exclusively the female body, naked or half clothed. For this he earned the reputation of erotic artist, and while he did not suffer the outright persecutions of his successors Schiele and Kokoschka, he was nevertheless subjected to the trials that a frankly erotic artist had to undergo in Vienna, where the everyday subject of conversation was the current love affairs of celebrities but where audiences were shocked by the sight of a dancer's naked legs. An issue of Ver Sacrum which reproduced one of his drawings was confiscated by the authorities. The drawings reveal above all that concern of great draughtsmen from Michelangelo through Blake: the marriage of subtle grace and expressive dynamism that is the human body. Like that of these two past masters, Klimt's method is essentially linear. He knew, as they did, that line, rather than shading, the creation of volume or the use of color, is the natural medium for expressing the freedom of the living human form. As he matured as an artist there was an increasing awareness of this and a greater and greater spontaneity that approached, finally, "the lightness of a net of gauze." -- from back cover
