Gustav Klimt (Austrian, 1862 1918) is the most famous of the Viennese Secessionists and one of the leading painters of Art Nouveau. From his earliest paintings, Klimt disclosed the persistent themes of his art: the longings and fears of the human psyche. His sensual paintings are as alluring today as they were to his contemporaries. This book of postcards presents a sumptuous selection of his masterful oils and murals. 30 full-color reproductions.
