Google Doodle ~ 14/07/12; 150th birthday of Gustav Klimt, the Austrian symbolist painter whose work was a cause of controversy for its celebration of sexuality, but which is now counted among the most expensive artworks in the world today. Born in 1862 in Baumgarten, near Vienna, Klimt was the son of a gold engraver and later became know for the gold leaf which adorned his highly decorated, colourful works produced after he trained at Vienna's School of Applied Art.
