About Gustav Klimt
The Austrian symbolist painter 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. Die Musik statue is part of Beethoven Frieze painted by Gustav Klimt for the Sezession exhibition fo 1902 in Vienna. Many of his paintings during this time, including the frieze, were made with gold leaves.
