Art HistoryThe 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.
