SAC-LandD-Gustav Klimt 170x150
The Life and Art of Gustav Klimt – a facsimile exhibition on Gustav Klimt
May 7 to June 16, 2019

This exhibit focuses on the artist by recreating the atmosphere of his era through historical photographs, biographical documentations and reproductions of his finest and most famous works of art.

Gustav Klimt (July 14, 1862 – February 6, 1918) 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 objets d'art.

He was one of the central figures of fin-de-siècle Vienna (Austria), the epoch that marked the beginning of Modernism. Klimt became one of the founding members and president of the Wiener Sezession (Vienna Secession) in 1897.

Klimt created some of the most famous Art Nouveau paintings worldwide and was the organizer of the “Jugendstil” art movement and promoter of young, up-and-coming talent.

Presented by the Austrian Embassy in Ottawa.
