One more amazing coin from the “World’s Greatest Artists” series! The “Gustav Klimt” coin is its continuation, which comes after the first coin – “Leonardo da Vinci”. Gustav Klimt was famous for being an artist who broke the rules. He fought against traditional styles of the 19th-century art by founding the Art Nouveau and Vienna Secessionist movements. He played an important role in the development of the history of art and gave rise to a new quality in the fine arts.
The coin contains a high relief profile of Gustav Klimt and a beautiful reproduction of his famous painting – “Medicine”, which portrays Hygieia – the goddess of health, cleanliness, and hygiene.
