Gustav Klimt, Watersnakes II (Hotel Belvedere)
Gustav Klimt was inspired by a golden cupola he saw in Venice; the prominent use of gold can first be traced back to Pallas Athene and Judith
He became one of the founding members and president of the Wiener Sezession,
a beautiful art building next to the ‚Naschmarkt‘ (don’t miss this when you come to Vienna!)
One of the biggest Gustv Klimt exhibitions is presented at Belvedere, the beautiful castle of Prince Eugene of Savoy one of the most successful military commanders in modern European history.
On Gustav Klimts birthday, July 14 there was a big celebration at the castle with many creative workshops. Did you ever print your own Klimt coin?
Here is the result:
Children worked on very nice Klimt paintings
The two ones in the middle are the winners of the Klimt competition. They really look like the couple Gustav Klimt and Emilie Flöge 😉
Have fun and Klimt Yourself 🙂 http://klimt.wien.info/en/
