The Meditative Beauty of Klimt's 'Bauerngarten'

London | March 2017

Painted in 1907 at the very peak of Gustav Klimt’s golden period, Bauerngarten is regarded as one of the artist’s finest landscapes. Sotheby’s Worldwide Co-Head of Impressionist & Modern Art, Helena Newman, describes the extraordinary impact of the work and how its innovative square shape focuses the eye on the shimmering surface of colour. A work of outstanding importance and beauty, this rare and exquisite painting leads Sotheby’s Impressionist & Modern Art Evening Sale in London on 1 March.
