Gustav Klimt is best known for his opulently gilded, Byzantine-inspired art nouveau portraitsof women, which epitomize fin de siècle (and early 20th-century) Vienna. His most famous paintings, Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer (1907) and The Kiss (1907), are among the most recognizable works of the early 20th century. Klimt’s Symbolist pastiches of pale nudes, allegorical gardens, and erotic subject matter celebrated the intersection of fine and decorative art and became exemplars of the Vienna Secession. Today, his paintings, drawings, and objets belong in collections worldwide, including the Neue Galerie and the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and the Leopold Museum and Belvedere Museum and Palace in Vienna. On the secondary market, Klimt’s work routinely sells for millions. While Klimt’s narrative paintings explore psychosexual anxiety and the human condition, his vibrant landscapes demonstrate a keen engagement with light and the abstract patterns of nature.
