Description:

The Getty Museum is known for a number of firsts when it comes to creative art exhibits, and they have recently embarked on the first retrospective fully dedicated to the drawings of Gustav Klimt. This particular exhibition was organized by the Albertina Museum in Vienna, in collaboration with the Getty Museum, to mark the 150th anniversary of Klimt's birth. Klimt was one of the seminal figures of international Modernism and approximately 4,000 of his drawings survive. Many of these works depict themes such as human suffering, the longing for love and happiness, and the cycle of life from birth to death. Visitors to the site can look through thematic sections that include Cycle of Life, Klimt & Life Drawing, and The Late Work. Finally, visitors shouldn't miss the video which explains the process Klimt used to create these drawings.
