The atmosphere of Klimt’s Nuda Veritas could be likened to the slow languor of Strauss’s operas or to the theatre productions of Schnitzler. His paintings and the few of his drawings that were not destroyed by fire demonstrate a sensuality of rare delicacy. For Klimt, “All art is erotic”, whether expressed through the extravagant Byzantine decoration of his Judith I, or through pure nudity. Great Masters Klimt brings together his finest and most popular paintings, which are particularly well suited to the series’ unique presentation of details, along with a text that demonstrates the extraordinary eclecticism of this great artist. In a small and practical format, this title will be the ideal gift.
