GUSTAV KLIMT Drawings and Paintings By Tobias Natter (HB)
A century after his death, Viennese artist Gustav Klimt (1862–1918) still startles with his unabashed eroticism, dazzling surfaces, and artistic experimentation.
In this neat, dependable monograph, we gather all of Klimt’s major works alongside authoritative art historical commentary and privileged archival material from Klimt’s own archive to trace the evolution of his astonishing oeuvre.
