The first virtual memory of the world-famous artist Gustav Klimt

Gustav Klimt's oeuvre shaped the "Vienna 1900" era, which continues to fascinate and resonate to this day. At the turn of the 19th to the 20th century, the capital and residence city of Vienna accumulated top achievements in the fields of art, literature, music, philosophy, architecture and science. This world of Viennese modernism with all its accomplishments, phenomena and personalities is presented online in the Gustav Klimt database and made accessible to the public.

The information platform
In the freely accessible sections "Klimt's Work" and "Network Vienna 1900", entertaining and richly illustrated texts allow users to discover not only the biographical and artistic career of the Art Nouveau painter, but also his private and public life in the socio-political network of this dynamic period.

The research platform
The Gustav Klimt database is also the first all-encompassing digital inventory of Klimt's paintings, photographs, exhibition participations and autographs by, to and about the artist. These categories can be accessed in the "Research" section, which can be used after a one-time free registration.

The English language version of the Gustav Klimt database will be online from 2024.
