This tour is great for those who would like to get a full understanding of Gustav Klimt’s art by visiting the three museums that exhibit his most prominent works.We start at the Belvedere Palace. This is where you can see “The Kiss” and “Judith”, the most famous paintings of the “Golden Period”. “The Kiss” is one of the most iconic tourist landmarks of the city, and we begin our tour here to understand the context and origins of Klimt’s art.After that, we will go to the exhibition hall of the Secession to see Klimt’s biggest work, the “Beethoven Frieze”. This is the only work by this artist that purposely fully surrounds the viewer, which means that this is your chance to become one with art.Our third stop is the Leopold Museum. Here, we’ll find “Death and Life”. We will examine this canvas in detail to understand why it was so significant for his artistic career. We are also going to have a look at Klimt’s landscapes to see his maturity and complete our tour of his artistic inheritance.
