A look inside the world of Gustav Klimt

Gustav Klimt is one of the most admired artists of the past year. His “Portrait of Adelle Bloch-Bauer I” broke the record for most expensive oil painting ever bought. Klimt is a rare combination of East meets West as his art is heavily influenced with Eastern symbolism, colors and dies. His art was always considered contentious as it is saturated with profanity and nudity.

This is a short animation film that is trying to take a glimpse into the world of Gustav Klimt, I hope you enjoy the ride:

The animation of this film incorporates many of the Gutav Klimt masterpieces. See if you can spot the paintings used in the film… See the Gustav Klimt Oil Paintings Gallery
