Got this book cheaply at a library book sale. I like the art of Gustav Klimt (even if I find him kind of pervy). He had aesthetic sense, a command of color and human likeness. This is one of those art coffee table books but I don't really want my kids to read it so it is on a shelf behind my bedroom door(which is still safe from them for the moment). ( )

Eu sempre fui fascinada por Art Nouveau, e sempre adorei Klimt. Passei tanto tempo olhando para suas obras que fiquei muito feliz comigo mesma quando comecei a entendê-las melhor, notando, por exemplo, a influência japonesa em suas pinturas. Ler um livro de um especialista foi maravilhoso. Pude confirmar algumas idéias e, principalmente, aprender muito sobre sua arte e sua época.
A única crítica que eu tenho a esse livro - que talvez seja uma crítica à edição que eu li - é que as pinturas nunca estavam na página em que eram descritas, o que tornava bastante desconfortável olhar os detalhes descritos.

Já sonhei em criar um híbrido perfeito entre esse livro e o da Rachel Barnes, mas eu jamais teria coragem de por essa idéia em prática. ( )
