Editorial Reviews for this title:
This sumptuously illustrated volume presents Gustav Klimt's most important paintings. In particular, the author examines the role of fashion designer Emilie Floge and her impact on his imagery.
The enfant terrible of the Viennese art scene, Klimt was notorious for his portraits of beautiful women. Illustrated with color reproductions, this book profiles the women who figured in the artist's life and on his canvases. The author looks beyond the standard assumption that Klimt was a hardhearted philanderer, pointing instead to his committed and loving relationship with Emilie Flöge that prevailed despite the parade of beautiful women who wandered in and out of the artist's studio.
