    I thought Gustav Klimt was going to be among my favorites artists because it started off with a bang in his wonderful The Old Burgtheater which in my opinion his best work Painted between 1886 and 1888 for the Burgtheater, Vienna, the Austrian National Theatre and one of the most important German language theatres in the world, this image demonstrates how Klimt, working together with his

a bang in his wonderful The Old Burgtheater which in my opinion his best work Painted between 1886 and 1888 for the Burgtheater, Vienna, the Austrian National Theatre and one of the most important German language theatres in the world, this image demonstrates how Klimt, working together with his brother Ernst and their friend Franz Matsch, had successfully established a reputation for producing large scale decorative works for theatres in cities across Austria In 1886 Klimt had won the prestigious commission to decorate the ceilings in the two monumental staircases that led to the boxes in the newly constructed Burgtheater on Vienna s Ringstrasse, as part of an ambitious scheme of urban renewal in the late nineteenth century A little history of his family The latter years of the nineteenth century had been a trying time for the artist, when his father passed away and then, very unexpectedly, his brother and fellow artist Ernst died in December 1892 At this time Klimt was made the guardian of Helene, Ernst s wife Helene s sister Emilie, who was eighteen years old, became a particularly helpful friend to the artist, when he became a frequent guest at the home of her parents, spending the summers with the Fl ge family at Lake Attersee Emilie Fl ge helped Klimt through this difficult time and was later to become his life long companion and the subject of many of his canvases and could well be the inspiration for Music I In many of his painting the gold colors are magnificent As Klimt s father had been a goldsmith, the artist had been trained early in life in the art of goldsmithing and he was keen to incorporate this technique into his new decorative style Many of his paintings have naked females which to me was a little too much but I do not condemn but give you my thoughts In 1894 Klimt had been commissioned to decorate the ceiling of the Great Hall of the University of Vienna Not completed until the turn of the century, his three paintings, Philosophy, Medicine, and Jurisprudence, now all lost to fire during the Second World War, were criticised for their radical themes and material, being labelled as pornographic by many outraged critics Klimt s art had transformed traditional allegory and symbolism into a new language that wasovertly sexual and challenging, even disturbing to the sensibilities of many of his patrons The public outcry came from many quarters political, aesthetic and religious As a result, Klimt withdrew the three paintings and they were never displayed on the ceiling of the Great Hall It would be the last public commission accepted by the artist I loved Love Above the two lovers in the centre of the canvas, there are several eerie female heads, mysteriously cloaked in mist, each representing different stages of womanhood On the right one of the heads represents the beauty of youth, whilst on the left the most arresting head of all belongs to an old hag, whose menacing stare gives a bleak warning about the fleeting pleasures of love Art historians have identified this painting as being one of the first works to chart Klimt s fascination of woman and of the theme being a focal point in his art, which would dominate the vast majority of his canvases in later years Beethoven Frieze The frieze illustrates the human desire for happiness in a suffering and tempestuous world in which human beings contend with external evil forces and internal weaknesses, as represented in the symphonic masterpieces of Beethoven The viewer follows this journey of discovery in a stunning visual and linear fashion The frieze begins with a floating female Genii searching the Earth, before introducing the sinister appearing storm wind giant, Typhoeus, his three Gorgon daughters and other images representing sickness, madness, death, lust and wantonness, displayed above and to the right Then appears a knight in shining armour, offering hope due to his own ambition and sympathy for the suffering humans The journey concludes in the discovery of joy as celebrated in Beethoven s choral symphony number nine by means of the arts, with contentment portrayed in the close embrace of a kiss Thus, the frieze explores psychological human yearning, ultimately satisfied through individual and communal searching and the beauty of the arts, coupled with love and companionship I also loved The Kiss The Kiss is widely regarded as one of the most famous images of twentieth century art Frequently reproduced, it portrays the embodiment of love in a single, beautiful image of an embrace shared between two lovers The rapt face of the woman, the protective adoration of her lover and their oblivion to everything else convey the sense of a total love, which has resonated with audiences across the world since its first unveiling in 1909, when it was enthusiastically received and immediately found a buyer Another favorite is Mother and Child In this collection there is not a biography which a short one would have been nice because he seemed an interesting character, though there are several photos of him Many of his paintings have been destroyed and many during WW 2.I enjoyed looking at his works which have a geometrical element I give you my review as a novice so I can not give youin ways of his techniques without sounding ridiculous
