This Kiss to the Whole World

Klimt and the Vienna Secession
Kiss to the Whole World
Project Description
Gustav Klimt (July 14, 1862 – February 6, 1918) was an Austrian Symbolist painter whose major works include paintings, murals and sketches. He was one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Art Nouveau (Vienna Secession) movement. The members of the movement hoped to create a new style that owed nothing to historical influence.
This online exhibition presents digital copies of the Vienna Secession along with photographic postcards illustrating some of the exhibition installations. The rare exhibition catalogs of the Vienna Secession held at the Frick Art Reference Library were expertly photographed by Ardon Bar-Hama.
