The panels depict swirling Tree of life|Trees of life, a standing female figure and an embracing couple. The mosaics are spread across three walls of the Palais’ dining room, with the two larger, figural sections set opposite each other on the longer walls of the room. A smaller, geometric panel occupies the short wall separating them. The designs are formed from a variety of luxury materials, including marble, ceramic, gilded tiles and enamel along with pearls and other semi-precious stones.” (Klimt Museum)

Art of the Day – 6/11/13 (The Kiss, Gustav Klimt)

Daily Artwork — “The Kiss, Gustav Klimt, 1907-1908”

Use the images posted in this feature for writing prompts, warm-up activities, drawing templates or as part of an artwork critique.

1907-08– The Kiss. Oil on Canvas. Art Nouveau style. Gustav Klimt (1862 – 1918). The Österreichische Galerie Belvedere, Vienna, Austria.

The Kiss is probably Gustav Klimt’s most famous work. It is also the high point of the artist’s Gold Period, which was characterized by his use of gold leaf in his work. This painting is one in which Klimt deviated from his portrayal of dominant in women in the form of a femme fatale. Instead is the portrayal of love and art, a couple locked in a golden-flecked, flower-filled embrace.(WikiPaintings)
