Gustav Klimt: 100 Drawings by Alfred Werner,Gustav Klimt



Gustav Glück, director of Vienna's Kunsthistorisches Museum, wrote as early as 1922 of Gustav Klimt (1862–1918) that his drawings were perhaps his ultimate artistic achievement. This founder of Secessionsstil and leader of the revolt against the Viennese academies was able to achieve greater freedom in his drawings than in his more laboriously executed paintings. While there are only about two hundred completed oils.

This is a fantastic collection of Klimt's drawings, dampened by a terrible introduction. Werner reduces Klimt's work to a strictly male sexual appreciation of the female body; Werner writes "to accomplish what he did he had to be thoroughly, completely familiar with his motifs. Actually, there was only one motif: the magic thrill a man experiences on seeing a female in the nude

Gustav Glück, director of Vienna's Kunsthistorisches Museum, wrote as early as 1922 of Gustav Klimt (1862–1918) that his drawings were perhaps his ultimate artistic achievement. This founder of Secessionsstil and leader of the revolt against the Viennese academies was able to achieve greater freedom in his drawings than in his more laboriously executed paintings. While there are only about two hundred completed oils, the drawings number in the thousands, and are reported to have at times quite littered his studio. He himself considered them finished works, and often exhibited them alongside his paintings.Klimt's subject matter is almost exclusively the female body, naked or half clothed. For this he earned the reputation of erotic artist, and while he did not suffer the outright persecutions of his successors Schiele and Kokoschka, he was nevertheless subjected to the trials that a frankly erotic artist had to undergo in Vienna, where the everyday subject of conversation was the current love affairs of celebrities but where audiences were shocked by the sight of a dancer's naked legs. An issue of Ver Sacrum which reproduced one of his drawings was confiscated by the authorities.The drawings reveal above all that concern of great draughtsmen from Michelangelo through Blake the marriage of subtle grace and expressive dynamism that is the human body. Like that of these two past masters, Klimt's method is essentially linear. He knew, as they did, that line, rather than shading, the creation of volume or the use of color, is the natural medium for expressing the freedom of the living human form. As he matured as an artist there was an increasing awareness of this and a greater and greater spontaneity that approached, finally, "the lightness of a net of gauze."

Pros: A bunch of Gustav Klimpt sketches.
Cons: You wish you had ten times as many.

Gustav Klimpt displayed an amazing ability to let go of a lot of his classical training and turn towards and understanding of drawing not as an ever-increasing precision of draftsmanship, but as the ability to transform elements of line and form into playfully drawn elements of emphasis and decoration while maintaining likeness. I don't know that everyone would want to imitate him (or for that matter, his contemporary, Egon Schiele) but the elegance with which he renders and transforms line and form into expressive reworkings of the human figure is undeniably brilliant.

I'm glad I own it.

Beautiful delicate drawings. Some are very light but I can still see the form so no complaints. A real treat to have a chance to see such gorgeous line work after being so familiar with Klimt's finished paintings.

I chose this rating because out of 100 illustrations 33 were so very faint that I need a magnifying glass to see anything o the page because it is so very faint. I think this book was a reject. This problem with the illustrations should have been mentioned

A fantastic look back at the innovator. A very insightful study of Klimt's foundation work.
