Klimt Lost - Book and Exhibition
Gustav Klimt died 100 years ago. His original collectors and patrons have since passed as well. Some of them were murdered by the Nazis. Many of them, scattered throughout the world, died in exile, where they were forced to stay even after the end of Nazi reign in 1945. Paintings by Gustav Klimt are not to be found on living room walls anymore, but mostly in museums. Some of his work was destroyed, burned or lost without a trace. Everyday lives that originally took place in front of those paintings ended with the “Anschluss” of Austria in March 1938. At the same moment the personal and familial relationships which the patrons had bound to the works of art were lost. The book "Klimt Lost" edited by Marion Krammer and Niko Wahl thematizes lost works of art as well as lost life perspectives. Each one of Gustav Klimt’s paintings is connected to someone’s personal story. Without these stories the works of Austria’s most famous artist would remain incomplete. The exhibition "Klimt Lost" is on display at Klimt Villa.
