Klimt was a prominent member of an innovative group of artists called Sezession
and is considered to be one of the main pioneers of modern art
. Apart from this, his ornamental Jugendstil
style evokes an irresistible feeling which is inspired by the fin-de-siecle of 19th century Vienna: elitist, liberal-middle class, decadent, and pleasantly decorative. His work is extremely recognizable due to his monumental style combined with Byzantine-like ornamental art and classical symbolism, created against the background of romanticism which was so characteristic of his time.
