The Highlights

Gustav Klimt’s birthplace in Baumgarten, near Vienna, in Austria-Hungary. Klimt was the second of seven children.  His mother, Anna Klimt (née Finster), had an unrealised ambition to be a musical performer and his father, Ernst Klimt the Elder, was a gold engraver.

Vienna, 1862

Klimt, c. 1905

THE HIGHLIGHTS

In this section, a sample of some of Klimt’s most celebrated works are provided, with concise introductions, special ‘detail’ reproductions and additional biographical images.

The Theatre in Taormina

Painted between 1886 and 1888 for the Burgtheater, Vienna, the Austrian National Theatre and one of the most important German language theatres in the world, this image demonstrates how Klimt, working together with his brother Ernst and their friend Franz Matsch, had successfully established a reputation for producing large scale decorative works for theatres in cities across Austria. In 1886 Klimt had won the prestigious commission to decorate the ceilings in the two monumental staircases that led to the boxes in the newly constructed Burgtheater on Vienna’s Ringstrasse, as part of an ambitious scheme of urban renewal in the late nineteenth century.

Klimt’s contributions to the project chart the history of theatre from ancient times to the modern era. The Theatre in Taormina reveals Klimt’s inspiration from the works of Hans Makart, the master of Vienna historicists, who had died two years before.  Klimt was a great admirer of Makart’s baroque style of lavish design, as demonstrated
