About Gustav Klimt
The Austrian symbolist painter Klimt was considered to be particularly controversial in his time because the main subject in his work was the nude female body. Despite the erotic nature of his work seen as a defiance against the academic Art of his time, Klimt became known for his highly decorative style. He was also a leading member of the “˜Sezession’ group of artists and a prominent pioneer of Modern Art. Klimt’s productive work was criticized for being too erotic and sensual, although they’ve proven today to be some of the most memorable paintings to ever emerge from the Vienna Secession movement. The Three Ages of Woman is part of Klimt “Golden Phase” that is his most widely recognized period of art. Many of his paintings during this time, including The Three Ages of Woman, were made with gold leaves.
