  • Gustav Klimt
    Jul 14, 1862 - Feb 6, 1918
  • Portrait of Amalie Zuckerkandl (unfinished) - Gustav Klimt was an Austrian Symbolist painter and one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Secession movement. His major works include paintings, murals, sketches, and other art objects. Klimt's primary subject was the female body, and his works are marked by a frank eroticism - nowhere is this more apparent than in his numerous drawings in pencil.

    Amalie ("Maltschi") Zuckerkandl, the sitter in this portrait, was a personal friend of Teresa ("Teddi") Bloch-Bauer's. Teddi's brother-in-law, Ferdinand Bloch-Bauer, apparently paid for this commission - presumably out of generosity towards Frau Zuckerkandl, and as further patronage of Klimt.

    Gustav Klimt's death in 1918 rendered this portrait permanently unfinished. Ferdinand Bloch-Bauer, as the legal owner, hung it in his bedroom at his Vienna mansion, located at Elisabethstrasse, No. 18. It remained there until Herr Bloch-Bauer's assets were placed under a "Protection Order" in 1938. Nearly everything he owned was liquidated in the months that followed, and the Bloch-Bauer art collection was placed in "Protective Custody" in 1939.

    What became of Amalie Zuckerkandl after 1939 remains unclear, although the portrait eventually surfaced in the possession of Vita Künstler, former owner of the Viennese Neue Galerie (an art gallery). Ms. Künstler donated the work to the Austrian Gallery in 1988. The Bloch-Bauer heirs are seeking its return in a separate lawsuit.

Gustav KlimtGustav Klimt was born in Baumgarten, near Vienna, Austria. He was educated at the Vienna Kunstgewerbe Art School in the years 1879-1883. Klimt was also an honorary member of the Universities of Munich and Vienna. His major works include paintings, murals, sketches and other art objects, many of which are on display in the Vienna Secession gallery. His work is distinguished by an elegant use of gold backgrounds and mosaic patterns. This can be seen in Judith I (1901), and in The Kiss (1907). Art historians note an eclectic range of influences contributing to Klimt's distinct style, including Egyptian, Minoan, Classical Greek, and Byzantine inspirations. Klimt was also inspired by engravings of Albrecht Dürer, late medieval European painting, and Japanese Ukiyo-e. Klimt was one of the founding members of the Wiener Sezession (Vienna Secession) and of the periodical Ver Sacrum. He left the movement in 1908. He died in Vienna of pneumonia and was interred at the Hietzing Cemetery, Vienna.
