Gustav Klimt is one of my favorite painters … I discovered him late in life.  I’ve always love the Impressionists and post Impressionists but art nouveau was not my cup of tea … until I came to live in Trentino.  A few years back, at the Mart of Rovereto there was a special exhibition entitled: Schiele, Klimt, Kokoschka and Viennese friends.  I fell in love with Klimt.

He’s famous for his “ladies” but he also did landscapes among other things.
