A resident of Vienna during its early 20th century cultural heyday, Gustav Klimt was inspired by his city, and his exquisite paintings and murals in turn made their mark on this artistic mecca. Illustrated with color reproductions of Klimt's paintings, this book also contains archival snapshots of this rather photogenic artist and his Austrian milieu. Klimt travelled little, but trips to Venice and Ravenna, as well as annual summer holidays with the Flöge family on the shores of Attersee, are also shown here to be a source of inspiration and influence on his creative output. In the text, Patrick Bade provides insight into how the people and places of Klimt's life relate to his work.
