The son of a Viennese engraver, the painter Gustav Klimt (Austrian, 1862-1918) became a leader of the Sezession (Secession), an association of artists founded in 1897 to challenge the prevailing academic conservatism prevalent in turn of the century Vienna. His highly ornamental style reveals the close connection between Symbolism and parallel movements in the decorative arts, such as Art Nouveau.
