This stole, created in homage to Gustav Klimt, is freely inspired by several of his works.
The Viennese Seccession, founded in 1897, was an association of young artists, including Gustav Klimt, Edward Munch and Koloman Moser, that soon gave birth to a highly original style. The aim was to break with the past and to invent new forms, techniques and materials.
While firmly linked to the Symbolist movement, these artists were nothing less than the forerunners of German Expressionism.
Trained as a set painter, Klimt is often considered to be the epitome of the ''turn-of-the-century'' artist and, in particular, of the Viennese artist of that period. He constantly made progess by changing and renewing his style.
