Klimt inspired art
Klimt, 1862 - 1918
Gustav Klimt, Austrian symbolist painter and a favourite in our art room, loved his cat who sat in his studio watching him create. Klimt also travelled widely and when he saw the ceramic art in Islamic architecture he was so inspired he came back to his studio and created his 'gold works' with all the patterns, textures and richness he'd seen, woven together.
4th classes are looking at Islam so we are making the most beautiful artworks with our own bejewled cats, printed gold mats and Islamic inspired buildings.
