The Kiss

 

A section dedicated to Gustav Klimt paintings and works exclusively.

Because Klimt combines the inclination for decoration with art.

His works are not only pleasant to look at. When you give yoursellf some time to indulge in exploring his work, you keep discover things.

The famous "Golden period" was inspired by the Byzantinne mosaics in Ravenna which he visited.

Jugenstil (Art Nouveau - the "New Art")), Austria and the turn of the 19th-20th are the key points to remember for this great artist whose elegant and fresh new way of depicting reality sharply constrast with the neo-classical and allegorical themes of the fashionable society of the time.

Klimt took the use of color and decoration to extreme limits.

He created what is one of the most beautiful (and auction record winner) painting: "The Kiss".
