Lot Essay

The present work is part of a series of fine preparatory drawings for Klimt's mosaic friezes of the main dining room of the Stoclet Palace in Brussels. Commissioned from Josef Hoffmann, one of the leading architects of the Vienna Secession movement, by the banker and art collector Adolphe Stoclet and his wife Suzanne, the building is considered to be an Art Nouveau masterpiece.
