Ernst #KLIMT, Brother Of Gustav. A Superior Artist
We don’t hear much about Ernst. Its all about Gustav. Probably because Gustav was a rabid Leftist and also a sexually depraved person. Leftists love depravity. Facts are facts, though. Both Ernst and Gustav were fabulous painters. It is good to know art and artists. It opens doors to chat with people that are less Eastern European Left and more Lib/Libertarian.
- In 1877, Ernst aged only thirteen, he became a student at the University of Applied Arts
- In 1891, he married Helene Flöge (1871-1936), the sister of Gustav’s friend, Emilie Flöge, and they had a daughter; also named Helene.
- 1881 Ernst, Gustav, and their friend from school, Franz Matsch, founded the “Künstler-Compagnie” and, two years later, opened their own studio.
At any rate… Look at the wonderful art of Mr. Ernst Klimt, someone you probably never knew existed.
- He died unexpectedly, from an inflammation of the pericardium. Gustav took care of his wife and daughter and completed his unfinished paintings.
Still Life with armor:
“Woman”, a collab with his brother, Gustav:
This is a painting in a Vienna Federal building. Also a collab with Gustav:
This was Ernst Klimt’s last painting. I believe it was a painting of his wife, Helene Floge. Gustav finished this painting for his brother as he passed away in 1883
