Klimt year 2012


Born on the 14th of July 1862 in Baumgarten near Vienna

He was the second of seven children. Klimt lived in poverty for most of his childhood.

In 1876 Klimt was awarded a scholarship to the Vienna school of Art and Crafts where he studied until 1883

In 1885, they were commissioned to decorate the Empress Elizabeth's country retreat, the Villa Hermes near Vienna (Midsummer Night's Dream).

In 1886, the painters were asked to decorate the Viennese Burgtheater, effectively recognizing them as the foremost of decorators of Austria.

At the completion in 1888 he received the Golden order of Merit from Emperor Franz Josef for the murals painted in the Burgtheater in Vienna.

In the coming few years, the artistic trio fell apart. Franz Matsch wanted to branch out into portrait painting.Meanwhile, Gustav Klimt's changing style made it impossible for them to work together on any project. Furthermore, Ernst Klimt died in 1892, shortly after the death of their father.

Gustav retreated from public life, focusing on experimentation and the study of contemporary styles of art, as well as historical styles that were overlooked within the establishment, such as Japanese, Chinese, Ancient Egyptian and Mycenaean art.

In 1893, he began work on his last public commission: the paintings Philosophy, Medicine and Jurisprudence, for the University of Vienna. The three would only be completed in the early 1900s.

In 1897, he, together with forty other notable Viennese artists, resigned from the Academy of Arts and founded the "Union of Austrian Painters", more commonly known as the Secession.

In 1902, Klimt finished the Beethoven Frieze for the 14th Vienna Secessionist exhibition.

Beginning in the late 1890s he took annual summer holidays with the Flöge family on the shores of Attersee and painted many of his landscapes there.

As he worked and relaxed in his home, Klimt normally wore sandals and a long robe with no undergarments. He avoided café society and other artists socially.His painting method was very deliberate and painstaking at times and he required lengthy sittings by his subjects.

Klimt's 'Golden Phase' was marked by positive critical reaction and success.

In 1915 his mother Anna died. Klimt died three years later in Vienna on February 6, 1918, having suffered a stroke and pneumonia. He was buried at the Hietzing Cemetery in Vienna. Numerous paintings were left unfinished.
