The painting was painted by Gustav Klimt (1862-1916), an Austrian painter and printmaker. uential artist of Viennese Modernism. Klimt's work departs significantly from the academic canons instilled in him during his years of study. Together with other Viennese artists, he founded the Association of Austrian Artists in 1897, with which he was associated until 1905. Gustav Klimt's intention was to create works free of all styles and conventions imposed by the artists of the time. One of the artist's most recognisable works is the portrait of Adela Bloch-Bauer I.
The attached graphic shows "Hygieia" is a painting from 1901. The work is part of "Medicine," a painting by Gustav Klimt commissioned by the authorities of the University of Vienna and presented to the public in March 1901. The work was created as part of a plafond to decorate the university's auditorium. The commission was to include five paintings, four of which symbolized the University's faculties: Philosophy (Philosophie), Medicine (Medizin), Law (Jurisprudenz) and Theology (Theologie). The author of Theology and the fifth, middle painting was Franz Matsch, the other three were by Klimt.
