Klimt und die Antike

Erotische Begegnungen

Author: Stella Rollig,Tobias Günter Natter

Publisher: N.A

ISBN: 9783791356983

Category: Erotic art

Page: 255

View: 2546

Gustav Klimt's 1907 publication of his illustrated edition of Lucian's ancient work 'Dialogues of the Courtesans' was the first time he exhibited his erotic art to the public, and it led to his denouncement by censors disturbed by the work's graphic content. This volume revives Klimt's masterful book, which pairs his erotic drawings with Wiener Werkstätte design, and which arguably resulted in the Art Nouveau era's most beautiful book. Klimt and Antiquity also compares the red- and black- figure Attic vases dating from the 5th century with Klimt's art. It presents Klimt's antiquity-inspired art as a dialogue between contemporary and ancient art, between genders, and between women's roles in times of antiquity and modernity. Essays explore Klimt's interest in ancient art; the ancient role of the courtesan; and the phenomenon of the Greek symposium as fertile ground for Greek art. Exhibition: Unteres Belvedere, Orangerie, Vienna, Austria (23.06.-08.10.2017).
