I was primarily interested in color plates illustrating Klimt's work, and this certainly provides this. However, the text is also very interesting. Klimt's very sexual works were actually done toward the end of the Victorian era, and must have been considered very scandalous. I certainly recommend this book to those with a specific intest in his work.

First of all, the book is not covered as shown in the amazon photo which shows the famous "kiss" painting. The book, apparently updated in 2006, shows a cover photo of Klimt's famous Danae (1907-8) oil on canvas painting. I think this cover is more provacative and more organic and softer than the famed Kiss painting which reveals a couple entwined in gold looking rather stiff. Danae was certainly a better choice for the cover. The book is definitely not written for the casual art reader. It is written with extreme depth as what I'd expect from a historian of the arts on a university research level. As verbose as it is, it has plenty, if not hundreds of photos of the famous works, including all of Klimt's paintings and lesser known sketches. The author discusses several of Klimt's famous paintings in depth and reviews various critics of Klimt's time period as well as Klimt's personal opinions and struggles. Culture, politics, and various movements in the arts is also discussed at length. This book is too deep for the casual browser or reader but makes a great coffee table book if only for the pictures alone. It is a high quality book and the pages are high quality (acid free) and glossy. The painting photos are rich and fully colored, better than other books I've bought on Klimt (where the precious gold paint is reduced to lousy brownish or greenish prints). The gold tones in this book, so famous in Klimt's work, are reproduced extremely well as well as the other vivid colors so characteristic of Klimt's work. It's a bargain to get this book at the price.

Artist Gustav Klimt can easily be brushed off as the Art Nouveau master of gilding and creator of iconic, erotic paintings such as "The Kiss," yet in this thoughtfully and thoroughly wrought biography-cum-art criticism the reader is treated to an in-depth personal and familial history, with diverse interpretations of his seminal works, and fascinating retrospective of the painter's lifetime body of work. Especially fascinating were the examination of resistance to Klimt's work for the Viennese Great Hall, the so-called "faculty paintings" that led to a mass protest by professors and led to his censure at a parliamentary level. Lavishly illustrated, balanced, and not afraid to delve deeply, Gottfried Fliedl has created a wonderful reference volume and inspiring, realistic view of an artist and his work. Klimt's work is so appealing because not only did he develop a unique way of presenting and creating images, he went above artistic representation and presented a philosophy that is still fascinating to explore.

This is a gorgeous and affordable collection of this remarkable artist. It is an especially lovely companion to the novel "Stolen Beauty" and the film
"Woman In Gold", which are about a specific Klimt portrait. I located this first at my local library and am delighted to have found it for purchase.

klimt's work is endlessly fascinating... its eroticism, its mythological references, its composition. klimt captures the power and symbolism of color and shape in a way that is unique amongst artists in the canon. his images are not merely pictures of women (and a few men), but stories with complicated layers of meaning. all this delicate beauty could be easily lost in printing, but this book has somehow managed to preserve it, and it is amazing! the text gives biographical and historical context, which is always helpful, and even ventures into analysis -- i enjoy knowing other people's perspectives, because it helps me to read deeper into what i'm seeing. all the master works are here, as well as many treasures that are often overlooked. if you are interested in art nouveau, art history, symbolism in art, and/or art history you really should own this book. believe me, it is well worth the price -- i wasn't expecting much for (the price), and would have willingly paid much more. i wish i had it in hardback though...

This book was nowhere near the 1.1" thickness stated in the description. Though it was well done for its very small size. If you are looking for a good book on Klimpt I wouldn't recommend this.
Very nice collection of the Klimt works. I bought it as a gift and it was delightfully received.
