Throughout the length of this tour, we will consider Klimt’s works in-depth, surrounded by his associates and rivals, as well as attempting to realize why this artist is so important for the city of Vienna.
The Belvedere has the most expansive collection of works by Gustav Klimt. Whichever aspect of this artist’s creations you are interested in, it is here that you’ll find his landscapes and women’s portraits, as well as the works of his "Golden" phase.
Numerous advertisements in Vienna invite visitors to see ‘the most famous kiss’. During my tour in the Belvedere, you will understand what makes "The Kiss" so popular, and will be able to decide whose point of view is most convincing, be it fine art experts, marketeers, or spectators.
Klimt was known for a long time as the portrayer of beautiful women, and we will see why science nowadays considers that Klimt felt the desires of his models better than his contemporary Sigmund Freud understood the problems of his female patients.
