Art HistoryGustav Klimt (Austrian, 1862–1918) led the Sezession (Secession), an association of artists founded in 1897 to challenge the academic conservatism of the time. Klimt worked with Josef Hoffmann and Koloman Moser, founders of the Wiener Werkstätte (Vienna Workshops), a designers' cooperative aligned with the principles of the Arts and Crafts movement, and together they strove to blur the line between fine and applied arts.
