9 Mar-30 May 2005.
This exhibition of some 100 plus drawings and sketches of nudes by the inspirational Viennese artist Gustav Klimt manage to uncover something of the artists intimate side, arguable for the first time. These works on paper, assembled from an array of public and private collections from around the world, would never have been intended for public viewing by Klimt himself. Now on show at the the Muse Maillol, the exhibition is a must for the many lovers of this key figure in the history of Art Nouveau and Viennese symbolism. These feminine figures are completely free of all reserve and contemporary taboos, simply portrayed devoid of any trimming or indeed color, and a true mark of the artists masterful view of the human form. Entrance costs _8 or _6 with concessions.
