Gustav Klimt (July 14, 1862 - February 6, 1918)
Gustav Klimt was an Austrian symbolist painter and one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Secession movement. Klimt is noted for his paintings, murals, sketches, and other objects d’art. Klimt’s primary subject was the female body; his works are marked by a frank eroticism. Many of his paintings […] used gold leaf; the prominent use of gold can first be traced to Pallas Athene (1898) and Judith I (1901), although the works most popularly associated with this period are the portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I (1907) and The Kiss (1907 - 1908). Klimt died […] in Vienna on February 6, 1918, having suffered a stroke and pneumonia due to the influenza epidemic of 1918. He was buried at the Hietzing Cemetery in Vienna. Numerous paintings were left unfinished. (x) (x)
