Gustav Klimt was a German artist who was born in Vienna, Austria and spent his lifetime there pursuing a decorative style of painting that was influenced by many different movements in art such as: impressionism, symbolism, art nouveau, and the decorative, yet primitive art of the ancient Greece, Assyria, and the Byzantine Empire. The first training in art that Klimt received was at the Austrian Museum of Art and Industry School of Arts and Crafts starting in 1874. Most commonly, Klimt is associated with the symbolist movement in art. Other training was received from Hans Makart, widely known and respected as the trend-setting artist for the fashionable decorative art movement which became increasingly popular with Viennaís members of upper class society. Klimt also worked as a decorator with his brother; a career which would influence the undeniably decorative characteristics of the famous Gustav Klimt paintings he would later create. The first commissioned works of Klimtís career would be architectural large-scale decorative paintings in the public structures of Vienna. The actual oil paintings of Gustav Klimt were quite decorative in nature and tended to have metallic tones and clear mosaic patterning influences. Most of his Gustav Klimt paintings were depictions of images of the female body, which were often in different levels of abstraction due to a mosaic style or other stylistic elements; however, he also painted many landscapes as well. The landscapes of Klimt are occasionally compared to those of Vincentt van Gogh as they share an intensity of expression and emotion, although the style of Gustav Klimt artwork maintains a greater sense of delicateness and restraint of emotion. The paintings of Gustav Klimt often exhibited the clear inspiration provided by movements in art that were not widely regarded at the time of his painting. However, some of the influences in the oil paintings of Gustav Klimt were fairly commonplace for the time, such as the symbolist idea of the destructive ability of the dominant female and the harmony which can be reached through harmonious love. One of his most notable accomplishments aside from creating the easily recognized Gustav Klimt oil paintings, Klimt became a founder and president of the Vienna Secession. The Vienna Secession was made up of a group of artists who criticized the traditional, historical styles of most Viennese artists and moved toward the more progressive trend of art nouveau. The primary goal of the artists of the Vienna Secession was to experiment with new ways of creating art with a freedom of process that would allow for innovation against tradition. Some of the most well-known paintings of Gustav Klimt have fetched record prices at auction, but all are considered to be a unique contribution to the history of art which is a precursor to the modern era. Some of his most famous paintings are: The Kiss, Judith I, Philosophy, The Virgins, Death and Life, Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer II, The Tree of Life, Beach Forest, Sea Serpents, and Mother and Child.
