Gustav Klimt: 150th Anniversary Oil Painting Museum on Klimtmuseum.com by ABC Art Gallery

October 13, 2011

Artists open an online museum as a virtual ode to the famous painter Gustav Klimt. The ABC Art Gallery project on Klimtmuseum.com allows users to virtually visit Vienna in 360° walk-through tour, visit a 3D rendered online museum and also visit the digital avatar of Gustav Klimt himself.

(PRWEB) October 13, 2011

2012 is the 150th anniversary of Gustav Klimt, the prominent Austrian Symbolist painter and founding member of the Vienna Secession movement. This occasion motivated a team of young artists to start an ambitious Gustav Klimt project on the funding platform Kickstarter.com. The project allows users to virtually visit Vienna in 360° walk-through tour, visit a 3D rendered online museum and also visit the digital avatar of Gustav Klimt himself.

Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) lived most of his time in Vienna. Some of his famous oil paintings are âœThe Kissâ, âœTree of Lifeâ and âœAdele Bloch Bauerâ. Gustav Klimt lived an average artist’s life, but today his paintings are sold for millions at auction. The primary subject for Gustav Klimt was the female body and he used substantial amounts of gold colour in his paintings.

The young artist group will be producing Klimt Season’s Greeting cards which are meant to be an art gift and are bundled together with online access to the museum.

If interested, you can find more information about the project at http://www.klimtmuseum.com. There you will find a link to Kickstarter.com page where you can help the project with a small donation.
