Library Art Series:
Thursday, April 6 • 7pm–8:30pm
Bart D’Andrea will present a slide presentation of the paintings of Gustav Klimt (1862–
1918). Klimt was an Austrian symbolist painter and one of the most prominent members of the
Vienna Secession movement. Klimt is noted for his paintings, murals, sketches, and
other objets d’art. Initially successful as a conventional academic painter, Klimt’s encounter with more
modern trends in European art encouraged him to develop his own eclectic style, including success with
the paintings of his “golden phase”, many of which include gold leaf.
