Gustav Klimt (1862-1918): The Vienna Secession occurred at the turn of the twentieth century in Austria and culminated in new ways of creating art. Key to this movement is the artist Gustav Klimt, who fused aspects of decoration into his expressive paintings. Considered a key thinker in the Art-Noveau spirit, Klimt’s paintings have become world famous for their inclusion of gold leaf as demonstrated in his most famous work, The Kiss (1907). Join the discussion as we examine Klimt’s works and also the famous legal battles resulting from instances of his paintings being confiscated by the state during World War II.
