Gustav Klimt (1862-1918)
Born: July 14, 1862; Baumgarten, Austria
Died: February 6, 1918; Vienna, Austria
Art Movement: Symbolism, Art Nouveau
A leading exponent of art nouveau among anti-conservative Vienna Secessionists, Gustav Klimt frequently provoked antagonism. The Emperor Franz Joseph II even forbade his drivers to go past any place showing Secessionist art. The objections were not to Klimt's sumptuous use of gold and Byzantine ornamentation, but to the barely concealed eroticism in his canvas paintings.
