The Kiss

 

When I first saw Gustav Klimt drawings I thought of the drawings of Egon Schiele: much erotism and drawing finesse. Schiele was Klimt's protégé. Coincidentally, Schiele and Klimt died the same year from the bird-flu pandemia (the famous "Spanish" flu at the end of the first World War)..

5 stars

"...this has to be my favorite"

"Wonderful. Quick, immediate, and from the heart - or some other organ of animal intensity. Despite the title, there aren't so many watercolors, nearly none. The drawings are superb, though. "

 

Egon Schiele (12 June 1890 - 31 October 1918)

Gustav Klimt (July 14, 1862 – February 6, 1918)

Klimt, like Picasso, had quite a macho, sexual, attraction to women. His drawings are exquisite sketches and portraits of female bodies and body parts. Erotic drawings are quite a constant in his work (similar to Schiele's drawings).

Concerning erotiscism, (a sublime "essay" on the physical and the spiritual love has been written by Pope Benedictus XVI in his encyclical letter "Deus Caritas Est"), I don't know why certain "private" drawings by say, Klimt or Picasso are art, and why similar images by unknown artist are, well, not really art instead. If you draw well, is everything allowed to you? I also don't know if the intention of Klimt was to show all of his drawings to the public...(During his life he DID create scandal and outrage, words like "pornography" were spelled by critics of the time)

This what a reviewer wrote about Klimt

"He was often photographed in a floor-length painter's smock, probably wearing nothing underneath. Also, he was commonly seen in his studio amid models not just nude but naked, in intimate and revealing poses, often in couples and more-somes. Add in the fact that Klimt acknowledged three children out of wedlock, and posthumously faced claims of fourteen more"
