Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) is renowned for his two-dimensional, ornamental works, which made him famous worldwide as the most important representative of Viennese Art Nouveau. This volume provides insight into the artistic influences of the great artists of Modernism who helped to firm his remarkable oeuvre.

Vienna in 1900 – the Vienna Secession, galleries, private art collectors and art magazines – introduced the art of the European avant-garde into Gustav Klimt’s surroundings. The Viennese artist was open to the pictorial language of his contemporaries including Alma-Tadema, Minne, Rodin, Toorop, Hodler, Van Gogh, Monet, Khnopff, Toulouse-Lautrec, Whistler, Matisse and many others, and adapted elements from a variety of styles. The publication presents in large-format illustrations the works of Klimt and artists who were close to him, revealing significant and often surprising parallels.
