Gustav Kilmt. Drawings


At the Pinacoteca Giovanni e Marella Agnelli, a selection of 48 drawings of Gustav Klimt, the ingenious and reserved artist, from the collection of Serge Sabarsky, the prestigious art merchant and collector.
Serge Sabarsky was born in Vienna in 1912 in a family of Russian Jews and later emigrated to the United States during the Second World War. Sabarsky started to collect works of German and Austrian expressionism in 1968, with some works by Klimt, Kokoschka, Schiele.
The drawings on exhibit at the Pinacoteca Agnelli are essential for understanding his turning point from an academic style to Symbolism, of which Klimt was a pioneer along with other secessionist artists. Among the drawings proposed, particularly noteworthy are those done for the Beethoven Frieze in 1902 for the XIV exhibition of the Vienna Secession and dedicated to the great composer. For the secessionist artists it was the first work of total art. The exhibition was designed in such a way that every work of the 21 artists present was in perfect harmony with the others and with the entire layout. It included the use of music, a performance of the Hymn to Joy directed by Gustav Mahler on the opening day.
