Allegory of Music - Gustav Klimt. Limited Edition Hand Embellished Giclee on archival canvas. The signature is in the plate. The edition size is 100. Includes Certificate of Authenticity. Approx. 24x28. 20% of proceeds go to charity. Klimt was a lightning rod for harsh criticism throughout his career. He either worked in the wrong style, was too vague for popular tastes or was far, far too explicit for Viennese sensibilities. After repeated skirmishes with both the State and the Artists Association, Klimt and ten other like-minded artists formed the Vienna Secession in 1897. Though the group was wildly successful, inevitable personality and style clashes arose and Klimt resigned from the Secession in 1905. He is best known today for his sensual portraits of women (clothed or otherwise), enhancing his jewel-like palette with gold and silver paints, mother of pearl and bits of real jewelry, and his immense talent as a draftsman. Gustav Klimt who died in Vienna in 1918 is regarded as one of the main representatives of the Vienna Art Noveau. Excellent Condition
