There can be no doubt about Gustav Klimts greatness as a draughtsman. Remarkable above all is the intensely sensual mood that he establishes in his limpid, fluid drawings and watercolours. This title brings together hundreds of Klimts works on paper in a way that enriches our knowledge of the artist and enhances the visual impact of his oeuvre.
