Gustav Klimt Landscapes

David Carrier reviews Klimt Landscapes at the Neue Galerie, New York.

Carrier points out the uniqueness of these pictures observing that “while Impressionism was shown in Klimt’s Vienna, he seemed to have worked in a parallel Austrian universe. His pointillism owes more to the sixth-century Christian mosaics at Ravenna than to Georges Seurat. … perhaps it is time to give up our traditional modernist canon to make way for these strange, passionately attractive pictures.”
