About the Book

 Austrian symbolist painter Gustav Klimt (1862–1918) expressed in his work a fascination with the liminal worlds that underpin his figures and landscapes. His art echoes different styles and traditions yet he has no obvious predecessors or disciples.
Offering a critical reappraisal of Klimt, the author explores the threshold universe depicted in a wide range of works from all phases of his prolific career, complemented with references to his correspondence.
