City of Klimt

 Gustav Klimt once said about himself:
“I can paint and draw. 
There is no self-portrait of myself. 
I am not interested in my own person – more in other people, females. […]
I paint day by day from morning to night – figurative paintings and landscapes, less often portraits. 
Already when I should write a simple letter I get frightened like due to imminent seasickness. 
Those who want to know more about me shall observingly regard my paintings, and try to realize who I am and what I want.“

Austria will celebrate the 150th anniversary of the birth of one of its most famous sons in 2012: Gustav Klimt (1862-1918). 
There will be more works by this genius painter and modernist pioneer on show in Vienna than ever before during this special jubilee year. Countless special exhibitions throughout 2012 will give art lovers unprecedented access to this artist’s prolific output.
Klimt spent most of his life in Vienna, and numerous examples of his work, particularly from his early period, are on permanent display in the Austrian capital.
