Gustav Klimt defied artistic convention. A leading member of the Austrian art nouveau movement known as the Vienna Secession, Klimt produced works of startling power, symbolism, and eroticism. His large-scale public works were not widely popular, yet he never lacked for respect, awards, and commissions.
Many of those commissions were portraits of women from Vienna's social elite, and it is these works that would come to dominate his career. Klimt also produced daring landscapes and semi-abstract paintings that reflected the influences of Van Gogh and Japanese art, although executed in his undeniably unique style.
The images in this calendar represent some of his best-known works, including The Kiss, Adele Bloch-Bauer I, and Portrait of Emilie Floge.
