Gustav Klimt: Painter of Women by Susanna Partsch

Gustav Klimt: Painter of Women by Susanna Partsch newly listed for sale on the fantastic BookLovers of Bath web site!

Published: Prestel, 1999, Paperback.

First in this, paperback, edition.

From the cover: The enfant terrible of the Viennese art scene, Klimt was notorious for his portraits of beautiful women. Illustrated with colour reproductions, this book profiles the women who figured in the artists life and on his canvasses.

The author looks beyond the standard assumption that Klimt was a hard-hearted philanderer, pointing instead to his committed and loving relationship with Emilie Floge that prevailed despite the parade of beautiful women who wandered in and out of the artists studio.

Partsch demonstrates Klimts role in the evolution of portrait painting, which helped usher in the age of Expressionism.

Near Fine.

120 pages. Index. 9½” x 6½”.

Of course, if you don’t like this one, may I tempt with you something from here?
