In 1907 Gustav Klimt collaborated with Franz Blei, illustrating a new translation of the ancient Greek Dialogues of the Courtesans by Lucian. The 15 erotic drawings made to accompany the Dialogues are at the heart of this catalogue and the exhibition it accompanied in Vienna: a great range of Klimt’s works are shown alongside ancient Greek artefacts, particularly red-figure vases, exploring the artist’s interest in erotic aspects of Greek art through an exceptional collection of paintings and drawings.
