Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gustav Klimt - The Complete Paintings (Hardcover)
This is one of the most astonishing books I've ever owned - a piece of art in it's own way. Superbly produced, with fantastic print quality, featuring large fold-out fragments from the "Tree of Life". This was of particular interest, since, as many of You probably know, the access to the original "Tree of Life" mosaic is almost impossible, and even on the Internet You will not find good representations of the original (Palais Stoclet still serves as a home for it's owners, Adolphe Stoclet descendants), only sketches are exhibited in Vienna. I was very surprised to find superb reproductions of the "Tree of Life" in this book - it's worth buying just because of them.
The book features extensive research of all Klimt's artwork, the phenomenon of Vienna Secession Movement and his biography.
