Hommage a Klimt is part of a limited edition set of 300.
Gustav Klimt (1862 - 1918) was an Austrian artist that is renowned for his use of colour and gold leaf. He was one of the founding members of the Vienna Succession art movement, which was formed in 1897 in objection to traditional art movements. Some of his paintings were criticised as being pornographic as he focussed on the female body, however he was celebrated for his ‘golden period’ of artworks and achieved financial success.
