Format: Paperback
A cheap and cheerful book of Klimt life sketeches and drawings. Deceptively easy linework. As these are black and white reproductions of graphite on paper some images are more difficult to see, but that is an advantage in forcing your own eyes to follow the sometimes shaking, sometimes sinuous line of the master.

A4 Repro's of some of Klimt's figure drawings, mainly female. A very good reference for his linework, only a couple of the repro's are too fine for the exposure. I'd recommend this to anyone studying figure drawing, or as a good reference for line that describes form without the need for tone.
A good, cheap addition to any collection of books on art.

Very pleased with the book itself. Although the book had something spilt on the front cover. It wiped off but was disappointing.

A Great View of Klimt's Intuition 14 Nov. 2000
By Matthew Ballou - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
These 100 drawings are essential for any student of Klimt's work. Given that many times it is this stage of his work that is under-represented in books on his art, this book is advantageous. I've been looking at Klimt for years, and many times I've marveled at his intuitive, initial marks; they are records of a man obsessed with obervational drawing. The drawings in this book, rarely seen, are great examples of the first and most direct marks he would use and they attest to his amazing skill. They shed light on the finished works while standing nicely on their own. Even though the works shown here represent only a minute fraction of his drawings (thousands littered his studios at any given time), these particular pieces provide a unique view of this controversial artist. A good purchase.

ga ga for gustav 10 Nov. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
this is an amazing book! as an amateur graphic artist, this has been an invaluable reference and inspiration to me. all of the drawings are of figures, mostly women, mostly naked. they were largely done without direction to his models while they lounged around his loft so they are very intimate, sensual, and sometimes erotic.
his style is so lucid, i can stare at the images forever. the line is so smooth and light(usually pencil, sometimes charcoal), that the images seem like stencils. the body is basically a contour drawing and then the hair is captured in typical art nouveau style, with stylized strands moving in one direction.
i can't say enough about this book. the work is so simple and stunning...when i try to relate what it means to me, i can't think of a thing to say.

Klimt Draws the Nude 18 May 2012
By Grady Harp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The name of Gustav Klimt is well known both publicly and among art students and artists in practice. A bit of background for the novice: Gustav Klimt (July 14, 1862- February 6, 1918) was an Austrian Symbolist painter and one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Secession movement. His major works include paintings, murals, sketches, and other art objects. 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 numerous drawings in pencil. It is this latter category that is the focus of this interesting and informative volume.

Though most people associate Klimt with the paintings of rich art nouveau depictions of women in radiant gowns often employing gold leaf to enhance the dazzle of the image, the real artistry of this artist's oeuvre is best examined by studying his drawings. Unlike his popular pupil Egon Schiele who elected to succinctly depict eroticism in his minimalistic, seemingly spontaneously executed drawings, Klimt defined details - such as faces with eyes and refined lips and associated hair depiction - with great attention to detail. These drawings are the more erotic ones produced by Klimt, but also included in this collection are images of the human form placed in positions or poses where certain aspects of the anatomy are featured in a most brilliant way. Yes, these are sensual images but they are also fine lessons in draughtsmanship for all artists and those who enjoy studying figurative representational art. This is probably the finest collection of Klimt's drawings available and there is much to admire and some fine lessons for observation for the working artists to emulate. Grady Harp, May 12

The simplistic beauty of a continual line 8 Oct. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Gustav Klimt is amazing. I love his work and I have most recently become more intrigued by his ideas and sketches. If you like Klimt, check out Auguste Rodin, and Egon Schiele also. They all have similar sketch stylizes and imagery. I am an art major and I specialize in painting portraits, so Klimt's sketches are a natural way for me to go. I love his work so I loved this book but as another reviewer stated, the images were too light. The drawings were awfully faint and on gray paper, I would have liked them to be printed darker or at least on white paper. Also there were a lot of his major sketches for his masterpieces missing that I've found in other books. Over all it's a very good book for a nice price.
