Klimt's Oil Paintings
Gustav Klimt is considered the leading figure of the European Art Nouveau movement in the early Twentieth Century. In his first phase, his works were characterized by an assorted style and a keen interest related to historical themes. From 1909 on, he specialized in mosaic decoration, which led to the creation of his most famous paintings today.
"The Kiss" and "Judith" are good examples of his paintings. They demonstrate the incredible technique the painter mastered so perfectly. The main themes that inspired his paintings were sex, love and death. The value of Klimt's works is clearly shown by the prices they have reached in the market. For example, the "Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer", painted in 1907, was acquired for 135 million dollars by the New York Neue Galerie Museum in 2006.
