Florian Kohlammer presents Georg KLIMT
On the occasion of FAB PARIS, the Florian Kolhammer gallery is publishing a catalog dedicated to a collection of artworks by Georg Klimt, the younger brother of Gustav Klimt.
The entire collection will be showcased on their booth (B14) at FAB PARIS 2023, at the Grand Palais Ephémère.
The Florian Kolhammer gallery, located in the heart of Vienna, specializes in European art and antiques from the Jugendstil, Art Nouveau, and Art Deco periods to mid-century design.
Georg KLIMT (1867-1931)
In the art world, the name “Klimt“ is inextricably linked with the period around 1900, Viennese Jugendstil and the Vienna Secession.
Today, Gustav Klimt is one of the most highly valued artists in the world, and his works regularly set new records.
But the Klimt family also spawned another exceptional talent: Gustav‘s youngest brother Georg.
Georg Klimt’s oeuvre is characterized by a fascinating independence, which, upon closer examination, shows clear elements of the Glasgow School as well as the Vienna Secession.
Klimt‘s curves and proportions, the allegorical, mostly mythical depictions as well as his great skill in the techniques of metalwork give his works a unique charm and a palpable fascination.
His chased reliefs represent a fascinating blend of Vienna Secession and Glasgow School.
They are unique objects on the art market, created by a phenomenal artist.
Since there are hardly any sources on the work and life of this sculptor genius, we have decided to correct this circumstance and pay due tribute to Georg Klimt‘s work with this publication.
We are pleased to present the first catalog of this scope on the works of the remarkable artist Georg Klimt and hope you enjoy browsing it.
