Gustav Klimt in Florence -A Close Up encounter with the artist through April 2, 2017

Technology and gorgeous art come together once again in the de-consecrated church of Santa Stefano al Ponte in Florence. The church, located just steps from the northern edge of the Ponte Vecchio, is a fabulous location for the exhibit.

The Klimt Experience brings over 700 images, projected by 30 laser systems, in an intimate exploration of the artist’s work.

From The Kiss to Portrait of Adele Bach-Bauer, recently the subject of the book and film, Woman in Gold, the opportunity to see so much of Klimt’s work, even if only in very high quality photographs is a rare one. Gustav was a symbolist painter, a leader in the Viennese secession movement. He is known for his use of multiples types media to include gold leaf.
