There is obviously more to the man than one famous painting and this book sets out the life and works of Klimt in enough detail to provide readers with a glimpse of an intriguing man. The colour plates cannot quite convey the glitter of his art work but that is a limitation of the reproduction process. Excellent value for money and even includes a timeline of his life at the end of the book.

A really excellent book about Klimt, with informative text & very high quality reproductions of some really difficult paintings, esp. the ones with goldleaf! BUT.....really poor reproduction of the Beethoven Frieze. Shame.

Good quality illustrations of Klimt's work. Well up to the usual standards of the other books in the Taschen series.
Exactly what I was looking for. All his art in one book, and his life story. Love it!
