Biographic Klimt

$14.95

 

The Biographic series presents an entirely new way of looking at the lives of the world’s greatest thinkers and creatives.  It takes the 50 defining facts, dates, thoughts, habits and achievements of each subject, and uses infographics to convey all of them in vivid snapshots.

Many people know that Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) was an Austrian painter and leader of the Vienna Secession, whose gold-drenched paintings include The Kiss.  What, perhaps, they don’t know is that he is rumored to have fathered 14 illegitimate children; that his studio was overrun by at least 10 cats; and that, in 2006, his Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I set the record for the world’s highest-priced painting when it sold for $135 million.  Biographic: Klimt presents an instant impression of his life, work and fame, with an array of irresistible facts and figures converted into infographics to reveal the artist behind the pictures.
