The Temple Chai Lifers presents: “Through the Eyes of the Artist” series presented on zoom by highly regarded Art Historian Felicia Zavarella Stadelman
Stadelman concentrates each lecture on a single artist. She expands our knowledge of each artist through their letters and journals which offer glimpses into their lives, loves and longings, their hearts and minds – reforming what we know about them and their works of art.
Gustav Klimt – Klimt was an Austrian symbolist painter and one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Art Nouveau ( Secession movement). Klimt is noted for his paintings, murals, sketches, and other Objects d’art. Klimt was considered a controversial figure in his time; his work was constantly criticized for being too sensual. Today, they stand out as a “visual symphony” and are regarded as the most important paintings ever to come out of Vienna.
