One final thought on Klimt, Fin de Siècle Vienna and a bit about artist Egon Schiele.....

Hollywood legend John Malkovich played Klimt in a little known 2006 biopic of the artist. The film was high on nudity, low on plot. Malkovich himself admitted in a press interview that art nouveau wasn't really his thing....

Egon Schiele, a protégé of Klimt, struggled to gain recognition amongst the art community that Klimt had, and this novel really sets the scene for Vienna at the turn of the century.
