Gustav Klimt life drawings at the Getty

Art / Mage

Gustav Klimt is known for his sumptuous, ornate paintings in which the figures are nearly submerged in a mosaic of jewel-like color and gold. He was also a highly accomplished and prolific draftsman. For drawings, Klimt preferred to work in black chalk and pencil, monochrome media which draw attention to the extreme refinement and intensity of his line.
