Gustav Klimt's portraits, both romantic and erotic, captured the golden age of Vienna at the turn of the century. A notorious ladies man, Klimt was obsessed with women - pale beauties dressed in extravagant gowns, or nothing at all. Morley Safer takes in the first major Klimt retrospective in this country, at New York's Neue Galerie. (Originally aired March 9, 2008.)

Harold Harvey: A collection of 108 paintings (HD) Description: "Harold Harvey was one of the few Cornish-born artists associated with the Newlyn Colony and the Lamorna Artists. He was the son of a bank manager and grew up in Penzance in the 1870s and 1880s, just when the area was becoming an artistic haven. Harold Harvey studied with Norman Garstin, and in the 1890s he travelled to Paris to study at the Atelier Julian. On his return he continued to live in Penzance until his marriage to fellow painter and regular artists' model Gertrude Bodinar, when they moved to Maen Cottage in Newlyn. His early work follows the style of the Newlyn Artists but by 1908/10 he had started to move away from that style of work utilising a much brighter palette and a simplification of form. Until 1916 Harvey concentrated on rural and marine themes but from then on his subject matter broadened to include sophisticated interiors. Harvey had many solo shows and exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1898 and then regularly from 1907 to 1941 (although he was never elected as an associate of the Royal Academy). He rarely went to London and preferred to stay in his native Cornwall. He died in Newlyn in 1941." --- SUBSCRIBE: www.youtube.com/c/LearnFromMasters?sub_confirmation=1 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/LearnFromMasters/ Google+: https://plus.google.com/+LearnFromMasters Contact: LearnFromMasters01@gmail.com SUPPORT MY WORK AT: https://www.patreon.com/LearnFromMasters LIST OF ARTISTS already posted on LearnFromMasters: https://goo.gl/hri4HE --- Thank you so much for your support!
This video covers the life of famous artist Gustav Klimt from his beginnings in Baumgarten in Austria to his worldwide success. He was prodigiously talented even from a young age, as was his brother Ernst, who he would set up an artist's company with. He was the first president of the Viennese Secession, but his life was not without controversy, the University paintings being a good example. He is best known for his portraits which are painted in a very decorative style often using gold leaf combining geometric decoration with realistic depictions of hands and faces. His most famous painting probably being The Kiss, completed in 1908. Klimt died in Vienna in 1918 just 55 years old. The video had been created for schools, kids, children , students and those beginners wishing to learn the basics of art history.

Gustav Klimt: A collection of 112 paintings (HD)
Description: "An influential painter and the founder of the Vienna Secession art movement, Gustav Klimt dominated the art scene in the 19th century Austria. Till date, his art works demand high respect and are widely revered in the art circles. Klimt chose to go off the beaten track of conventional and traditional academic art and adopted the new trend in European modern art. He is known for his decorative art, a genre that most of his contemporaries chose not to adopt. He was the most renowned proponent of Art Nouveau, a genre of art that was inspired by natural forms and structures. One of the most celebrated artists of the 19thcentury, Klimt’s paintings portrayed women in sensual and erotic tones. It was the presence of erotic appeal in his paintings that is accountable for his being enlisted in the list of most controversial artists of his time. Gustav Klimt’s work were constantly criticised for their sexual elements, due to which he had to submit some of his works to religious authorities before exhibiting them. Some of best known paintings include, ‘Old Burgtheater in Vienna’, ‘The Kiss’ ‘Portrait of Baroness Elisabeth Bachofen-Echt’ and ‘Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I’."
