Gustav Klimt: Drawing as a Guiding Principle
The Getty Center
Date: Sunday, July 8, 2012
Time: 3:00 p.m.
Location: Harold M. Williams Auditorium
To the public, Klimt is known primarily as a painter, in particular as the creator of his renowned "golden paintings." In truth, however, the practice of drawing formed the core of his unique genius, and line was the fundamental basis of his art. Marian Bisanz-Prakken, curator of drawings at the Albertina Museum, shows how Klimt, through his obsessive, daily study of the human figure based on observations, developed the defining themes of his art, including love and eros, and life and death. Complements the exhibition Gustav Klimt: The Magic of Line.
