Lady with Fan

It is Gustav Klimt’s last, almost completed painting and a fascinating, self-confident female portrait: Lady with Fan. In Vienna as a loan to the Belvedere, this important late work will be presented at the Upper Belvedere in a special exhibition devoted to Klimt’s final artistic phase.

Shortly after Gustav Klimt’s death in 1918, a photograph was taken in the artist’s studio. It shows two paintings, each displayed on an easel: "Lady with Fan" and the unfinished work "The Bride". While the latter has been on loan to the Belvedere for decades, the arrival of "Lady with Fan" in Vienna represents an important addition to the display of Gustav Klimt’s oeuvre. The Belvedere is presenting a fascinating show about the final artistic phase in the work of Vienna’s iconic artist.

The first part of the exhibition focuses on Klimt's late, unfinished works. In addition to "Lady with Fan", "The Bride", "Amalie Zuckerkandl", "Adam and Eve," and "Lady in White," among others, will be shown. Starting in October, the show will add a component: Klimt's affinity for East Asian art styles.

"Lady with Fan" was the last painting Klimt worked on during the year 1917, and, except for a few details, he was able to finish the work. Whereas most of his portraits show society ladies, in this picture Klimt has probably painted an unknown model.

Lady with Fan" has only been exhibited once in Vienna: over a century ago at the Kunstschau in 1920.
