The Austrian artist Gustav Klimt is famous for his psychologically astute portraits of the Viennese bourgeoisie. The text of "Klimt's Women" outlines the major events of the artist's life, examining his struggle for artistic acceptance as a result of the frank eroticism of much of his work, and his significant paintings and the development of his style. Around 60 of Klimt's paintings are reproduced, including famous works such as "The Kiss"; the date of composition, medium and dimensions are given for each.
