Gustav Klimt (1862 – 1918) was an Austrian Symbolist painter and one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Secession movement. His major works include paintings, murals, sketches, and other art objects.

Klimt’s primary subject was the female body, and his work is often distinguished by elegant gold or coloured decoration, spirals and swirls. One of the most common themes Klimt used was that of the dominant woman, the femme fatale.
Art historians note an eclectic range of influences contributing to Klimt’s distinct style, including Egyptian, Minoan, Classical Greek, and Byzantine inspirations. Klimt was also inspired by the engravings of Albrecht Dürer, late medieval European painting, and Japanese Rimpa school. His mature works are characterized by a rejection of earlier naturalistic styles, such as The Glasgow School, from which he was heavily influenced, and make use of symbols or symbolic elements to convey psychological ideas and emphasize the “freedom” of art from traditional culture.
He was keenly interested in exploring Freudian issues surrounding psychoanalysis in his works. Freudian issues gave his work a dark intricacy that would be highly influential for future artists.
