According to the writer Frank Whitford: "Klimt of course, is an important artist—he's a very popular artist—but in terms of the history of art, he's a very unimportant artist. Although he sums up so much in his work, about the society in which he found himself—in art historical terms his effect was negligible.
So he's an artist really in a cul-de-sac. Artists who reinterpreted Klimt's work include Slovak artist Rudolf Fila. Several of Klimt's most famous works from his golden period inspired the title sequence for the animated adaptation of the manga series, Elfen Lied , in which the art is recreated to fit with the series' own characters and is arranged as a montage with the song "Lilium". The opening to the anime Sound of the Sky also is largely inspired by Klimt's works, which was also directed by the same director as Elfen Lied.
The art of the video game Transistor also uses patterns and embellishments inspired by Klimt. Gustav Klimt and his work have been the subjects of many collector coins and medals, such as the Euro Painting Gold Coin , issued on November 5, , by the Austrian Mint. The obverse depicts Klimt in his studio with two unfinished paintings on easels.
In addition to the permanent exhibitions on display, the city of Vienna , Austria celebrated the th anniversary of the birth of Klimt with special exhibitions throughout the city. Guided walking tours through the city allowed people to see some of the buildings where Klimt worked. In , the Austrian Mint began a five-coin gold series to coincide with the th anniversary of Klimt's birth. The first 50 Euro gold coin was issued on January 25, and featured a portrait of Klimt on the obverse and a portion of his painting of Adele Bloch-Bauer.
As a reaction, the museum's director Tobias G. Natter resigned in protest, citing Ucicky's past as a Nazi propaganda film-maker.
