Monochrome collotype on chine colle paper laid down on heavy cream wove paper with untrimmed deckled edges. Excellent condition. Presented in a handmade gold leaf frame with conservation acrylic glazing. One of 30 prints from the “Eine Nachlese / Dernière gerbe / An Aftermath” portfolio. “Gastein” was one of 16 original paintings by Klimt which were destroyed on 8 May 1945. The paintings were in storage in the Schloss Immendorf, a 16th century castle in Lower Austria, which was set on fire by a retreating tank division of the German army. Max Eisler (1881-1937), the publisher of this print, was an art historian at Vienna University who published the first Klimt monograph in 1914. He intended the “Eine Nachlass” portfolio to compliment “Das Werk”, the only folio set produced in Klimt’s lifetime, and overseen by Klimt up to 1913.


The Artist

Gustav Klimt

Gustav Klimt was an Austrian symbolist painter and one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Secession movement. Klimt is noted for his paintings, murals, sketches, and other objet d’art. Klimt’s primary subject was the female body, and his works are marked by a frank eroticism. In addition to his figurative works, which include allegories and portraits, he painted landscapes. Among the artists of the Vienna Secession, Klimt was the most influenced by Japanese art and its methods.
