Synopsis

Gustav Klimt A Painted Fairy Tale by Stephan Koja

From painted ceilings and hypnotic murals to gold-flecked portraits, Klimt's works are as fun as they are fascinating! Children of all ages will respond to this vibrant exploration of Klimt's most celebrated paintings. Beautiful reproductions of his friezes, paintings and photographs show the important aspects of Klimt's career and personal life. Double-page spreads and dynamic design introduce young readers to the artist's intricate mosaics, his use of mythological references, his dazzling palette and his enchanting and elegant portraits. Young readers are invited inside Klimt's studio, where they learn what a day in the life of the artist entails. They are encouraged to share Klimt's love for painting as they gain an understanding of the artist's unique and mesmerising work.
