This is Gustav Klimt's poster lithograph for the First Secession Exhibition (censored version). The poster was created for the Art Exhibition of the Union of Austrian Artists. This is a hand pulled, fine art recreation, by S2 Art, of the original 1898 lithograph.
Vereinigung Bildender Künstler Österreichs were also known as the Vienna Secession (Wiener Secession).
Gustav Klimt had created the now vintage poster or the, 1898, First Exhibition of the Union of Austrian Artists at the Gartenbau-Gesellschaft (Imperial and Royal Horticultural Society) in central Vienna.
The lithograph is pulled through a 19th century French Marinoni Voirin press on Rives BFK cotton paper.
This is not print or reproduction. It is a remastered, recreated, original work of art.
This piece was produced at S2 Editions Atelier, New York City, in 2001, under the guidance of the Ré Society, Ltd, and S2 Art company.
This lithograph bears the trademark of the Ré Society, plus the blind stamped emblem of the S2 Editions Atelier. The signature of the chromist is also printed unobtrusively on this lithograph in order to distinguish it from the original Golden Age poster.
