A NEW DIMENSION
The exhibition Klimt, Gold and Colours will open the ball with a sensational immersion in the most beautiful paintings by Gustav Klimt. Do you know, my dear readers, Gustav Klimt? At the beginning of the 20th century, the Austrian artist was regarded as an indispensable painter of the Viennese scene.
Gustav Klimt left behind him an enigmatic and mysterious work. Among the 220 canvases that we know of the painter, we retain his portraits of women gilded with fine gold, both magical and disturbing.
A modern way of approaching the work of the great Viennese painter gives a second life to the paintings. Get ready to live a colourful journey into the heart of luminous and contemporary works.
