for details of exhibition and works exhibited :

The masterpieces of Gustav Klimt are quintesensual I could have stayed for hours last week , when I visited the exhibition in Venice, just looking at his paintings and drawings.I found his earlier work fascinating to see .The architectural drawings paintings  and designs of Josef Hoffman were also a highlight for me  and reminiscent  of  the art and architecture of Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Charles Rennie Mackintosh with The Glasgow Four exhibited with Secessionist  in  1900

The Glasgow Four 

Charles Rennie Mackintosh

You might be interested to look at the watercolours of Charles Rennie Mackintosh  the video above shows some of his watercolours with his architecture  ....I have a beautiful book Mackintosh's watercolours which catologues a collection of his work.

Below I've added a video from the Tate which shows a similiar exhibition on a larger scale in Liverpool UK 2008 which focuses on Secession and work of both Klimt and Hoffman .
