Gustav Klimt (Austrian, 1862-1918), Church in Cassone, 1908-1913, collotype, unsigned

Item Description:

An original collotype on heavy wove paper, printed in black/gray ink 1908-1914 by the publishing house H.O. Miethke. Signet (intaglio-printed in gold ink) in lower margin, center.

In 1908, Klimt undertook a unique and important collotype project, being a limited edition titled “Das Werk Gustav Klimts”, completed in 1914. The prints depict Klimt's most important paintings from 1898 to 1913. Klimt closely supervised production of the portfolio, which was overseen by the prestigious Galerie Miethke, his exclusive art dealer in Vienna. A complete set of “Das Werk Gustav Klimts” (the Work of Gustav Klimt) contained 50 prints on heavy wove paper with deckled edges. Issued unbound, the prints were divided into five groups of ten, each group published separately over a period of six years and sold only by subscription through the publisher, H.O. Miethke. “Das Werk Gustav Klimts” demonstrates the remarkable ability of the collotype process to render gradations of tone, color and texture. All sheets and most of the images are in a square format, with the remainder in the narrow rectangle format derived from Japanese paintings and woodblock pillar prints. Klimt designed a unique signet for each print, to be centered beneath the image and impressed in gold ink. Today, images from this portfolio, printed during Klimt's lifetime, are quiet rare and in high demand.
