    Description

    Georg was the brother of Gustav and Ernst Klimt. After completing his apprenticeship, he studied at the
    Vienna School of Arts and Crafts. From 1897 on, Klimt showed his works, which were based on his own and
    other artists’ designs, in arts and crafts exhibitions at the Austrian Museum of Art and Industry. He designed
    several Secessionist relief panels of the highest quality, as well as the bronze doors for the main entrance of
    the Secession, built according to plans by Olbrich in 1898. The VIIIth Secession Exhibition in 1900 offered
    Klimt the opportunity to familiarize himself with furniture and arts and crafts objects designed by the
    Scottish artists Charles Rennie Mackintosh and his wife. He was particularly impressed by their chased
    objects, and subsequently created several exceptional reliefs. Although they reflect the influence of these
    renowned artists, they were executed in Klimt’s own elegant Viennese style. Many of Georg Klimt’s reliefs
    were commissioned as decorative panels and were incorporated into the furniture of the best Viennese
    cabinetmakers of their time, such as Michael Niedermoser, Fritz Nagel, or August Ungethüm.
