“I can paint and draw. There is no self-portrait of myself. I am not interested in my own person – more in other people, females. […] I paint day by day from morning to night – figurative paintings and landscapes, less often portraits. ... Those who want to know more about me shall observingly regard my paintings, and try to realize who I am and what I want.“ - Best known as the "painter of women" during the fin-de-ciècle Vienna, Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) was a passionate landscape painter. Whereas he painted on commission richly decorated, gold-leafed luxuriant portraits of society ladies and femme-fatales, he pursued landscape paintings as a creative retreat.
