Quotes by Gilles Néret  (?)

“This intensely lyrical vision of the pregant woman in [i]Hope I[i] is set in an ambiguous context peopled with masks, death's heads and allegorical monsters such as Sin, Disease, Poverty and Death, all threatening the incipient life.”
Gilles Néret, Gustav Klimt: 1862-1918
tags: art, klimt

“Eros and Thanatos were always the source of his inspiration, even though, from this time on, they usually appear in the guise of two simple and fundamental themes: flowers and women. These themes offered him the greatest opportunity to give a certain permanence to all that can be grasped in passing: an ephemeral sensual joy, the ecstasy of life.”
Gilles Néret, Gustav Klimt: 1862-1918
tags: art, klimt

“Some elements appear in this picture which would be decisive in Klimt's subsequent work: for instance, the use of gold and the transformation of anatomy into ornamentation, of ornamentation into anatomy.”
Gilles Néret, Gustav Klimt: 1862-1918
tags: art, klimt
