Visual Art Lecture with Thomas Germano: GUSTAV KLIMT WOMEN OF VIENNA
Wednesday May 24, 2017
Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) was an Austrian Symbolist Painter and the most prominent member of the Vienna Secession movement. His major works include paintings, murals, theatre design, drawings, and other art objects, many of which are on display in the Vienna Secession gallery today. Klimt's primary subject was the female body, and his works are marked by a frank eroticism. Nowhere is this
more apparent than in his prolific drawings in pencil. 2017 marks the 155th year since the birth of Klimt the Neue Galerie in NYC is featuring 'Klimt and the Women of Vienna’s Golden Age, 1900–1918' through January 16, 2017. Professor Thomas Germano will discuss the art of Klimt and the artist's lasting legacy and influence found in a generation of younger artists including Egon Schiele and contemporary design.
