He became the president of the Vienna Secession movement and was the editor of its publication Sacred Spring. When he no longer took public commissions in the 1890s, he was seen taking yearly vacations to the beaches at Attersee, where Floge and their brood would always accompany him. Photowall pays tribute to this tranquil and placid time in the artist’s life with “The Kiss, Gustav Klimt”, “Klimt, Gustav-Adele Bloch-Bauer I”, and “Klimt, Gustav-Italian Garden Landscape”, and “Hygieia-Gustav Klimt” in its fine collection of Gustav Klimt canvas prints.
