Gustav Klimt dominated
cultural life in Vienna at the turn of the Twentieth Century and was the bridge
between the Symbolism of fin-de-siècle Europe and the wave of Modernism that
captured the imagination of the Continent. Part I of this talk (April 8) will tell the
story of Klimt’s remarkable life, as well as examine his ebullient landscapes,
sensual drawings, and ravishing portraits. In Part II (April 15) we will discuss the
relationship between Klimt and his many Jewish patrons, what happened to them
and to the Klimt works they owned during the Nazi era and beyond.
