This Art Book contains Foreword and annotated by Daniel Coenn reproductions of Gustav Klimt,s drawings, date and interesting facts page below. Drawings played a major role in Gustav Klimt's artistic development. From sketches and preparations for oil paintings, to erotic drawings and portraits, the present book illustrates the full range and depth of Klimt's abilities as a draughtsman. Klimt's talent and brilliance as a draughtsman, however, was widely recognized only after Klimt's death. During his lifetime, he hardly sold a drawing nor did he exhibit them. For Klimt, his drawings represented a private world in which he increasingly explored his own obsession with the woman and his notions of femininity. Indeed, many of Klimt's drawings have still never been seen in public because they entered into a private collection directly from the artist and have remained there ever since.
