As the enfant terrible of the Viennese art scene, Gustav Klimt was acknowledged to be the painter of beautiful women, painting mythological goddesses and heroines as well as portraits of affluent Viennese ladies. Focusing solely on Klimt's relationship with his women and his canvases, "Gustav Klimt: Painter of Women" reveals both the artistic genius and the character of the great painter. Concentrating on the major women in Klimt's life and those who modelled for him, the chapters look into each of those important women and their relationship with Klimt. With splendid reproductions and informative text, this revised third edition of a best-selling title is now available in the popular flexi-cover.

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.About the Author:
