Artis Orbis - Gustav Klimt
During the golden age of Art Nouveau, the opulent works of his 'Golden Phase' see figures and ornamentation blending together to form uniquely sensuous compositions. Gustav Klimt (1862 - 1918), co-founder of the "Vienna Secession", brings together the different strands of the international Art Nouveau movement in his magnificent paintings and is thus considered to be its most important exponent. Indeed, his best-known painting 'The Kiss' is universally recognized as the ultimate 'allegory of love'.
