Portrait of a Girl, Head Slightly Turned Left
he was only 17 when he drew it!

Painted composition/design to Medicine
Klimt was commissioned to paint the ceilings in the University of Vienna’s great hall, the paintings were: Philosophy, Medicine and Jurisprudence. However the university didn't like it, as they were said to be pornographic, even the critics were against Klimt. The paintings were destroyed in 1945 and we are only left with few photographs and sketches to these paintings.
Hygieia (part of Medicine)

The Beethoven Frieze: The Hostile Powers/far wall/
