Gustav Klimt Centre


On the occasion of the 150th birthday of Gustav Klimt (1862-1918)
. On the occasion of the 150th birthday of Gustav Klimt (1862-1918), the Gustav Klimt Center opened on the 14th of July 2012 in Kammer am Attersee in a prime location on the avenue of Schloss Kammer once painted by Klimt.

A multimedia exhibition created by the Vienna Leopold Museum entitled >I long to be there like never before<. Gustav Klimt´s summer sojourns on the Attersee 1900-1916< informs visitors about the artist´s numerous stays on the Attersee. For the opening of this permanent presentation Klimt´s famous painting >On the Attersee< from 1900 was returned to the place of its creation for 10 days as a loan from the Leopold Museum. Also shown were previously unexhibited drawings created by Klimt between 1870 and 1918, valuable photographs as well as original autographs by the artist, which were all displayed for several months. As these works on paper are highly photosensitive, they cannot be permanently exhibited for conservational reasons. They were replaced in November 2012 by high-quality facsimiles of the originals. Other highlights, including the collotype prints and heliogravures exclusively produced during Klimt´s lifetime, the wicker chairs used by Klimt during his summer holidays, the Klimt busts as well as numerous antiquarian magazines and books will continue to feature in the presentation all throughout the winter months. In the summer of 2013 the Gustav Klimt Center hosted once again original works by the artist - "Ein Morgen am Teiche" was presented.

We wish you an informative visit to the Gustav Klimt Center!
