A keeper; Fabulous masterpiece as part of my "amateur art collection" (in quotes, considering this is a book). My personal top 3 Klimt favorites are: The Kiss (which I earlier saw at the Belvedere Museum in Vienna in 2013), Hope, and Avenue in Schloss Kammer Park.

Naturally, I have many other Klimt favorites (particularly from the time period he used Gold); both Klimt's paintings and portraits, as well as, short-descriptions of the paintings in this book portray a self-portrait of Gustav and his
This is an enormous book and beautiful to flick through when needing inspirations. Includes some details and description on each piece plus facts on the life of Gustav. Not just a pretty book to look at!
