The eroticism of Gustav Klimt’s painting is obvious to anyone who has enjoyed his art. A new exhibition at the Secession in Vienna, Austria will make that eroticism obvious to the rest of the world. Outside of the area in which Gustav Klimt’s Beethovenfrieze appears, a sexually explicit “swingers” club hopes to bring sexy back to Klimt’s art in a big way. If nothing else, it may get people talking about Klimt in the same way his contemporaries did. Please come over to Picture This at Big Think to read more of "Bringing Sexy Back."
