This week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast spotlights the drawings of Gustav Klimt as presented in “The Magic of Line,” a survey exhibition at the J. Paul Getty Museum on view through September 23. Joining me to discuss Klimt’s works on paper is Albertina curator Marian Bisanz-Prakken, who organized the show.
This detail from a sketch, for one of Klimt’s so-called faculty paintings, includes a floating figure. The works, destroyed at the end of World War II, represent the peak of Klimt’s symbolist period. He made many, many drawings for this figure. Several are in the Getty exhibition.
Bisanz-Prakken oversees the Gustav Klimt drawings catalogue raisonne project. At the Albertina she is the curator of Dutch drawings (she has published numerous articles on Rembrandt’s drawings) as well as the curator for turn-of-the-century Austrian works on paper.
