Gustav KlimtSketch of an Woman - 6x6
Extremely rare limited edition offset lithographs from Gustav Klimt's solo show in Vienna. Published in Vienna, Austria, 1903. Over 100 years old and in near mint condition. Absolutely stunning. Framed, matted and ready to hang. Gustav Klimt (July 14, 1862 – February 6, 1918) was an Austrian symbolist painter and one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Secession movement. Klimt is noted for his paintings, murals, sketches, and other objets d'art. Klimt's primary subject was the female body, and his works are marked by a frank eroticism. In addition to his figurative works, which include allegories and portraits, he painted landscapes. Among the artists of the Vienna Secession, Klimt was the most influenced by Japanese art and its methods. Early in his artistic career, he was a successful painter of architectural decorations in a conventional manner. As he developed a more personal style, his work was the subject of controversy that culminated when the paintings he completed around 1900 for the ceiling of the Great Hall of the University of Vienna were criticized as pornographic. He subsequently accepted no more public commissions, but achieved a new success with the paintings of his ""golden phase"", many of which include gold leaf. Klimt's work was an important influence on his younger contemporary Egon Schiele. The artwork will be shipped with a Certificate of Authenticity issued by White Cross Arts.
