Gustav Klimt: Painter of Women
Gustav Klimt: Painter of
The enfant terrible of the Viennese art scene, Klimt was notorious for his portraits of beautiful women. Illustrated with color reproductions, this book profiles the women who figured in the artist’s life and on his canvases. The author looks beyond the standard assumption that Klimt was a hardhearted philanderer, pointing instead to his committed and loving relationship with Emilie Flöge that prevailed despite the parade of beautiful women who wandered in and out of the artist’s studio. Partsch demonstrates Klimt’s role in the evolution of portrait painting, which helped usher in the age of Expressionism.

Gustav Klimt: Art Nouveau and the Vienna Secessionists (Masterworks)
Gustav Klimt: Art Nouveau and the Vienna Secessionists
Gustav Klimt is renowned as a quintessential artist of the art nouveau movement, but he was one of a number of Viennese artists who strove to break free of the constraints of the late 19th Century academic art establishment. The Secessionists were united, not in the style of their work, but their desire for freedom, so although there are echoes of similarity in the work of Klimt, Schiele, Kolomon Moser and the many other fine artists, their distinction lies in their magnificent difference. This new illustrated book focuses on the rich diversity of the movement and offers a sumptuous gift of colour and glamour for every art lover.

Gustav Klimt: Landscapes
Now available again, this visually stunning collection of Gustav Klimt's landscape paintings brings to light a lesser-known aspect of the Viennese painter's oeuvre.While Gustav Klimt is largely revered for his opulent, symbolladen portraits of the Viennese bourgeoisie, these works were just one aspect of his artistic expression. His landscapes represent an important facet of his career and are a valuable contribution to the school of European nature painting. For many years the artist travelled to the Austrian and Italian countryside during the summer, where he took advantage of the extraordinary light and spectacular hues to paint and sketch landscapes. Among the most exquisite of Klimt's landscapes are those in which he experimented with composition and style. Accompanied by scholarly essays, the images reproduced in this book comprise all extant landscapes from this brilliant artist, proving that his mastery extends beyond portraiture and revealing themes that appeared throughout his life's work.

Gustav Klimt at Home
Gustav Klimt at
Gustav Klimt at Home explores the influences of Vienna and other places Klimt travelled to and called home on his life and work. Klimt was one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Secession movement. He was both influenced by and shaped the city of Vienna at the turn of the century, undertaking several public commissions. Klimt travelled little, but trips to Venice and Ravenna, as well as annual summer holidays with the Flöge family on the shores of Attersee, were a source of inspiration and influence on his creative output. Fully illustrated, the book features paintings, archive imagery and photographs of the surrounding city and landscape to provide an insight into how the people and places of his life relate to his work.

The Great and Immortal Painters' Stories: Gustav Klimt
The Great and Immortal Painters' Stories: Gustav
When I was born, I came across music due to my father who loved music so much, and as I grew up I became more and more immersed in the music.My first experienced music genres were classical music and old pop due to my father’s influence. Then, I became interested in other music genres and other areas of culture and arts besides music, and art was one of them.When I started to learn the art, I frequently visited bookstores to buy art books, and subscribed monthly art magazines, too. I also visited galleries quite often to expand my knowledge about art. However, whenever I visited the galleries at the time, I felt a lack of something. There was no background music. If there were background music matching with exhibited paintings, I thought it would be more touching for appreciating them. I managed a culture and arts space in Seoul, South Korea until last year, where I had lectured various culture and arts programs. When I make programs, I prefer collaborative making of various areas.As an example, I created a lecture combining art and music based on the previous experience at the gallery. In addition, I added movies to the lecture. This is the main frame of the program, "The Great and Immortal Painters’ Stories.” In this program, I cover stories about lifetime, interesting st...
