Since 1945 there have been only four exhibitions showcasing Gustav Klimt’s work in Germany. The more important is that the Kunstmuseum Moritzburg Halle (Saale) celebrates the centennial of his death with the only special exhibition in Europe outside Austria. With 12 paintings and more than 40 drawings, the exhibition shows the whole spectrum of the artist’s work. Today, Gustav Klimt is not only known as the most important representative of Vienna art nouveau, but with his distinctive style, he is unique in European art history. Only four of his paintings are today actually held in a German museum collection – one of which is in the Moritzburg Art Museum Halle (Saale): the Portrait of Marie Henneberg, painted in 1902.
