Gustav Klimt Gallery

Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) was an Austrian painter who has been called the preeminent exponent of Art Nouveau. Klimt began as an artist-decorator in association with his brother and Franz Matsoh. In 1886, Klimt began mural decorations for staircases at the Burgtheater and the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna. Completed six years later, these works confirmed Klimt's eclecticism and broadened his range of historical references. Klimt was a cofounder and the first president of the Vienna Secession, a group of modernist architects and artists who organized their own exhibition society and gave rise to the Secession Movement, or the Viennese version of Art Nouveau.
