early Gustav Klimt

When we think of Klimt we’re generally thinking of late Klimt, of the paintings he did after 1897 when the Vienna Secession was formed. His early works are rather different. I wouldn’t argue that they’re better but they’re less familiar and therefore worth a look.

Gustav Klimt, Music I, 1895

Gustav Klimt, Allegory of Sculpture, 1896

Gustav Klimt, Portrait of Sonja Knips, 1898

Gustav Klimt, Fable, 1883
