Staud's Art Nouveau Collection: Leopold Museum

More about the Leopold Museum

No 35: Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) "Death and Life"
Gustav Klimt worked on this allegorical painting from 1908 to 1911, a period in which he exhibited it several times and continually revised it. The observers of this image are generally struck by two impressions: for one, the crass polarity between life and death (not captured in the Staud cover image), for another, the depiction of human lifestages from infant to old woman. In addition to this large-scale work, the Leopold Museum has several other works by Klimt, including the landscapes "A Morning at the Lake" and "Attersee".
