Looking at Klimt's Landscapes
Auctioned off two years ago at Sotheby's in London, this painting "Church in Cassone" (1913) by Gustav Klimt was saved from the Nazis, but it was also lost for a good while. (It sold for about 26 million pounds.) Read the story here. (Guardian)
I have been looking at Klimt's amazing landscapes recently in a gorgeous book about them.
I like them better than his figurative works. To view more, click on buildings or landscapes in this link.
