The Editions

The Gustav Klimt | Vienna 1900-Private Foundation (Klimt Foundation) has been editing two series of publications - Edition Klimt and Edition Klimt Research - on internal research projects and external research collaborations in the field of Gustav Klimt, the "Vienna 1900" era and in the context of the founder Ursula Ucicky and the collector Gustav Ucicky.

The Edition Klimt focuses on artistic and personal milestones in the life and work of the Austrian Art Nouveau painter and pioneer of modernism, like: his last studio in Feldmühlgasse, his summer sojourns at the Attersee, the fashion designer Emilie Flöge or the development of floral Art Nouveau and its effects on Gustav Klimt's oeuvre.

The Edition Klimt-Research focuses on new research facets in the life and work of Gustav Klimt as well as interdisciplinary topics within the historically significant "Vienna 1900" era. The first volume in this series is dedicated to an aspect that is specifically related to the collection of the Klimt Foundation: the unknown correspondence from Gustav Klimt to Maria Ucicka, the mother of his first illegitimate son Gustav.

In addition, projects with a certain ​​"Vienna 1900" focus are published in cooperation with external researchers:

The first detailed monograph and catalogue raisonné on the photographer Moriz Nähr is currently in the planning stage. The oeuvre of the autodidact is no longer received exclusively as a purely documentary phenomenon. The aesthetic and historical connections with the Viennese Art Nouveau and especially with Gustav Klimt's work are also in focus.

Both editions are published by Christian Brandstätter Verlag and are available in bookshops or can be ordered via: office@klimt-foundation.com
