‘The Arts, Paradise Choir, and The Embrace, detail of Beethoven Frieze’, de Gustav Klimt

In 1902, Gustav Klimt [July 14 1862 – February 6 1918] painted the Beethoven Frieze for the 14th Vienna Secessionist exhibition, which was intended to be a celebration of Ludwig van Beethoven the composer and featured a monumental polychrome sculpture by Max Klinger. Meant for the exhibition only, the frieze was painted directly on the walls with light materials. After the exhibition the painting was preserved, although it did not go on display again until 1986. The Beethoven Frieze is now on permanent display in the Vienna Secession hall (Austria). Via.
