Clarence Hudson White

An accountant with a passion for art, White began teaching himself photography by taking portraits of his friends and family in his spare time. In 1896, he won a gold medal from the Ohio Photographer’s Association. As time passed, he became increasingly devoted to photography, helping to found the Photo-Secession movement in 1902 and, a few years later, moving to New York to pursue photography full time. He went on to become a renowned teacher of photography. Who are some of his famous students? More… Discuss

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: 

Gustav Klimt (July 14, 1862– February 6, 1918) was an Austrian Symbolist painter and one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Secession movement. His major works include paintingsmuralssketches, and other art objects. Klimt’s primary subject was the female body,[1]and his works are marked by a frank eroticism—nowhere is this more apparent than in his numerous drawings in pencil (see Mulher sentada, below).[2]
