You can watch a great documentary film in the picturesque Várkert Bazaar. This time with Gustav Klimt at the centre. If you love art and are interested in similar subjects, this is the place for you!

Gustav Klimt’s Kiss is one of the most famous and reproduced paintings in the world. It is perhaps the most popular poster on the walls of student dormitories from Beijing to Boston. Painted in Vienna around 1908, this suggestive painting of an unknown couple embracing has captivated viewers with its mystery, sensuality and dazzling subject matter from the moment it was painted. But what is behind the painting’s appeal; and who was its creator? A close study of the painting – its real gold, its decorative patterns, its symbolism and its seething eroticism – takes us to remarkable turn-of-the-century Vienna, when a new world was struggling with the old.
From the director of Frida Kahlo and Mary Cassatt – A Portrait of a Modern Woman and the producers of Vermeer: The Most Comprehensive Exhibition of Life’s Work Ever, comes a powerful, captivating and passionate new film.Klimt was the titan of the Art Nouveau movement, creating decadent new worlds that fused tender sensuality, ancient mythology and radical modernity. Discover the scandalous artist behind one of the world’s favourite paintings and the rich tapestry of extraordinary influences that touched him.
