The exhibition ‘Klimt e l’arte italiana’ presents Klimt’s influence on the great artists of the early 20th century, including Adolfo Wildt. In the centre of the picture: Adolfo Wildt, La Genesi, 1914.
“If in Klimt the preciousness of the material is a sort of ‘ode to joy’, in Wildt, on the other hand, it is a symbol of holiness, just as in the most ancient tradition of Christian art.”
