Klimt's art is in a category of its own. Though often described as an Art Nouveau artist I can't think of anyone else who produced comparable work. As a consequence his appeal will never be universal. As the saying goes - you either hate him or you love him. I don't know if my appreciation has quite reached the infatuation stage but I do find his work fascinating (enough, in fact, to have purchased that mammoth, Taschen back-breaker).
This Parkstone edition offers a wide selection of his paintings and includes most of the masterworks. For someone interested in an inexpensive introduction this should fit the bill nicely. The reproduction quality is more than could be hoped for in a publication in this price range. The book is well bound and has an attractive and substantial dust jacket. At 200 pages there's a lot of bang for the buck between those two covers.
Glad I made the purchase. As I stated, I own the Taschen "Grosse Buch", but I will pull the Parkstone edition off the shelf 20 times as often. As gorgeous as the Taschen volume is it's not exactly easy to access. And frankly, Bade's book concentrates all of the most important paintings in a much more convenient format.
Amazon's inventory of this book seems to change from week to week. If you are contemplating a purchase, and it is in stock, don't hesitate. When it's unavailable from Amazon outside seller's prices can go through the roof overnight. I would recommend buying this book even if you own other Klimt titles. It really is worth clearing a space for.
