Private Themed Tour of the Belvedere with an Art Historian: "The Kiss" by Gustav Klimt: how it became the Symbol of the Viennese Art

Ads all over Vienna lure viewers at every turn to the Belvedere to see 'the most famous kiss', on this tour you will understand what The Kiss is all about and decide for yourself whose arguments are more persuasive — art historians, marketers or viewers.

You will not only understand Klimt's style, but also see reflections of the the century turn in the work of this extraordinary artist.

We will trace Klimt's creative transformations from his early Portrait of the Unknown Lady to his unfinished Bride, which was left in the studio when the artist was rushed by ambulance to hospital.

Klimt was long known as 'the portraitist of beautiful ladies', and we will see why today's scholarship believes Klimt felt the desires of his models better than his contemporary Sigmund Freud understood the problems of his patients.

On this tour, we'll take an in-depth look at Klimt's work, surrounded by his associates and competitors, and see why this particular artist is so important to Vienna.

If you not only want to see The Kiss but also find diverse meanings in Klimt's works, this tour of the Klimt collection in the Belvedere is for you.
