This video covers the life of Gustav Klimt from his beginnings in Baumgarten in Austria to his worldwide success. He was prodigiously talented even from a young age, as was his brother Ernst, who he would set up an artist’s company with. He was the first president of the Viennese Secession, but his life was not without controversy, the University paintings being a good example. He is best known for his portraits. The portraits are painted in a very decorative style combining geometric decoration with realistic depictions of hands and faces. His most famous painting probably being The Kiss, completed in 1908. Klimt died in Vienna in 1918 just 55 years old.
