Stunning Gustav Klimt Wall Murals
Posted by Andrew Gerraty
Decorate your wall with a wall mural using some of the stunning artworks of Gustav Klimt, one of the most influential artists to come out of Austria.
Born in 1862, Klimt later enrolled in the Vienna Public Arts School as a 14 year old and was spotted as a talent from an early age. Identified as being ahead of his time, he was viewed by many as a controversial artist due to the perceived erotic nature of some of his works that seemed beyond acceptable for the last 19th Century / early 20th Century.
In the 1880’s Gustav and his brother Ernst and Franz Matsch worked together producing works for Theatres, Churches and Museums. In 1891, Klimt enrols in the Co-operative Society of Austrian Artists but by 1897 started feeling that his popularity was taking a turn for the worse. At this point he begins the secession movement, with a real focus on young artist talent. As success grew he became the dominant driving force of this movement, which was the most popular in Austria through the first years of the 20th Century. After leaving the Succession Movement in 1905, Klimt creates the works, Danae and The Kiss, which pushed the boundaries of the time with their depictions of male and female sexuality.
During his later years much of his worked followed this same path and not until after his death in 1918, was Gustav Klimt’s work, far more widely accepted. Many of his works are now seen as some of the very best to have ever come out of Vienna.
