Happy Birthday Gustav Klimt!
This Friday, July 14, Gustav Klimt would have been 161 years old. To celebrate the birthday of the famous Austrian painter, Art Explora Academy has put together a selection of videos and podcasts. If you'd like to discover the life and work of the Symbolist artist whose The Kiss is one of the masterpieces of the Vienna Secession, you've come to the right place!

Between his monumental body of work and promiscuous personal life, Gustav Klimt (b. Baumgarten, Austria, 1862-1918) is an enduring subject of fascination. His risqué figure drawings upended the traditional sensibilities of late 19th/early 20th century Vienna, and rendered the Austrian artist something of a controversial hero.
