About the Event

Using the immersive exhibition of Gustav Klimt: gold in motion as inspiration, let Debbie Wells of Artful Circle give you the scoop on the artist and his bohemian lifestyle, explanations of his stunning portraits and paintings, including Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer, 1907 of Woman in gold fame to the lavishly embellished The kiss, 1907.

Whether you attend the immersive exhibition before, after, or not at all, at the Hall des Lumières at 49 Chambers Street (in the former Emigrant Savings Bank historic site), this lecture will give you an artful background on this iconic artist.
