Gustav Klimt: Founder of the Austrian Art Nouveau painting. The main subject of his painting was a woman's body, and most of his work is distinguished by a frank eroticism.

Gustav Klimt (1862-1918), the famous Austrian painter. Born in a suburb of Vienna in the family of artist-engraver. He graduated from the Vienna School of Decorative Arts. His early work consisted mainly of large murals for theaters, and were written in a naturalistic style. In the paintings depicting allegorical figures executed by Klimt in 1890-1891 on the arches of a great staircase Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna, first appeared in the features that have become key in his creativity - a clear outline and a penchant for ornamentalizmu. After 1898, Klimt's work, are becoming more decorative, symbolic aspect.

Gustav Klimt - the leader of the Viennese avant-garde turn of the century, an active member of the community of artists and innovators, "Secession". Klimt's best works - his later portraits, with their flat, unshaded surfaces, translucent, mosaic colors and forms, and sinuous, florid lines and samples. Klimt's paintings combine two opposing forces: on the one hand - this thirst for absolute freedom in the depiction of subjects that lead to the game of ornamental forms. These works are really symbolic and must be considered in the context of symbolism as an expression of an inaccessible world stands against time and reality. On the other hand - this power of perception of nature, which mitigates the impact of ornamental pomp in his paintings. Among his most exciting work - a series of mosaic murals at Pallas Stoclet, wealthy private mansion in Brussels.

By the end of his life in 1917, Klimt won full recognition, becoming an honorary professor of the Vienna and Munich Academies.
