"Es ist die höchste Summe, die jemals für ein Gemälde gezahlt worden ist" berichtete die New York Times im Juni 2006 begeistert. Für die Rekordsumme von 135 Millionen Dollar erstand der Kosmetikhersteller Ronald Lauder Gustav Klimts berühmtes Ölbild "Adele Bloch-Bauer I" - auch bekannt als "Goldene Adele" - für die Neue Galerie in Manhattan, New York.

Einst hing die Ikone des Jugendstils als unverkäufliches österreichisches Kulturerbe mit dem "Kuss" und anderen Meisterwerken des Wiener Meisters Gustav Klimt im Wiener Stadtschloss Belvedere. Nach jahrelangem Rechtsstreit wurde es nun den Nachfahren der ursprünglichen Besitzer zurückgegeben.
Auf diese Weise kam erstmals ein derart hochrangiges Klimt-Gemälde auf den Kunstmarkt - und stellte auf Anhieb die damalige Höchstmarke von 104,1 Millionen Dollar für ein Picasso-Bild weit in den Schatten.

Original: Neue Galerie, New York.
Für eine brillante, authentische Wiedergabe wurde bei diesem Bild die Originalvorlage im Fine Art Giclée-Verfahren direkt auf Künstlerleinwand aus 100% Baumwolle übertragen und auf Keilrahmen aufgezogen.

Portrait of the artist Gustav Klimt

About Gustav Klimt

1862-1918, Austrian painter, a famous representative of Viennese Art Nouveau

Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) was already a renowned artist, influencing the Art Nouveau style of Vienna's famous Ringstrasse with his murals and co-founding the Vienna Secession, when he created his "Golden Style". Inspired by the Byzantine mosaics, he inserted ornamental colour surfaces into a golden bed just like encased gemstones. With his visual art, Klimt describes the path of life of human beings who, negatively influenced by instincts, find their redemption in the kiss. The depictions of the body convey a subtle eroticism, although their figures dissolve into ornamental and geometric colour surfaces. He utilized this method not only for his depictions of couples but also for his portraits of rich women and landscape paintings. This two-dimensional style is today the epitome of Klimt's intensely coloured art, which, however, only characterises his work from 1905 onwards.

Klimt was not only adept at gold and opulence but was also a brilliant draughtsman. He produced numerous drawings in the course of his life. Mostly as preliminary studies for larger works.

As a son of an engraver, Klimt learned his craft at Vienna‘s School of Applied Arts. While still seeking to find his own artistic style, his early work is based on historicism especially influenced by Hans Makart, the artist Prince of the Habsburg monarchy in the late 19th century. Together with his brother Ernst and Franz Matsch, the three young painters formed an artistic community and received numerous commissions to design new buildings on Vienna's Ringstrasse. The staircases of Vienna's Burgtheater or the Museum of Fine Arts bear witness to the historicist style of this collaborative team.

In the late 1890s, like so many young and open-minded artists of the fin de siècle, Gustav Klimt abandoned the academic tradition. In 1897, together with other artists, he founded the "Wiener Secession", which he presided over as president until his resignation in 1905. To this day, the Secession's exhibition building remains a place and temple for new young art.
