This beautiful book has a pictorial cover with matching jacket. The jacket has a diagonal crease that ends in a 1" tear at the top near the gutter. ; Gustav Klimt was raised in poverty in mid-nineteenth century Vienna, but his precocious artistic talent raised him from the gutter to the heights of Austrian society. He was initially a generic painter of historical scenes, but soon devised his own unique style featuring semi-nude women in mystical, gold-wrapped abstract landscapes that either enchanted or outraged his audience. His exotically beautiful women captured the sensuality and excitement of the time and electrified Viennese society. Many of Klimt's paintings were destroyed at the end of World War II but they remain at least as photographs to show the world what had been lost. ; 16mo 6" - 7" tall; 96 pages
