Arts Everyday Living: Through the Eyes of Gustav Klimt—Portrait of His Sister, A Memory

Gustav Klimt, Annerl, 1885, black chalk, pencil with white accents on paper, Private Collection

Austrian master Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) is usually identified with exotic works like THE KISS and PORTRAIT OF ADELE BLOCH-BAUER.  However, Annerl above is a personal and intimate portrait, probably of Klimt’s sister Anna.
