RENEE PRICE is the director of the Neue Galerie in New York City.Review:
''...valuable for scholars and Klimt lovers alike and an essential item for museums and libraries.'' --Dr. Felizitas Schreier, President, Verein Gedenkstätte Gustav Klimt, Vienna
''Highly readable, impeccable in its scholarship, and pioneering in its interpretations, Alessandra Comini's Gustav Klimt has been an invaluable introduction to the Austrian artist for years. More than any other author, Comini has shaped our perception of Klimt and his place in Vienna's cultural life around 1900.'' --Reinhold Heller, Professor of Art History and of Germanic Studies emeritus, The University of Chicago
''Art historian Alessandra Comini brings great scholarly passion and imaginative sympathy to her work on Gustav Klimt and the Viennese culture that formed him. Her groundbreaking research has illuminated the life and work of some of the twentieth century's most compelling artists as well as composers.'' --Renee Price, Director, Neue Galerie New York, Museum for German and Austrian Art
