Famous Quote from Gustav Klimt

"I have the gift of neither the spoken nor the written word, especially if I have to say something about myself or my work. Whoever wants to know something about me -as an artist, the only notable thing- ought to look carefully at my pictures and try and see in them what I am and what I want to do."

This poster is of Gustav Klimt's The Kiss, and depicts a couple shrouded in gold and symbols sharing a kiss. The man is standing, bending over to kiss the woman who is kneeling on a patch of flowers and seems to be accepting the kiss, rather than actively participating. The portion of gold covering the man is covered with mostly rectangular, black and white shapes, while the woman's portion seems to be dotted with flowers. Measures 16" x 20". Gustav Klimt (July 14, 1862 - February 6, 1918) was an Austrian Symbolist painter and one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Art Nouveau (Vienna Secession) movement. Klimt's primary subject was the female body and his works are marked by a frank eroticism. His works include The Kiss, Adele Bloch-Bauer, Judith and the Head of Holofernes, Avenue in Schlob Kammer Park, Danae, The Friends, The Virgins, Mada Primavesi, Mulher sentada.

      I love his unique designs. We have "The Kiss" in our hallway, and also two Klimt-inspired rugs in my husband's music studio. The colors are so cheerful. Everyone comments on the rugs especially. Nice lens!

      You know what disservice you would have done to this lens if you had not wrote anything about the life of the man, Gustav, but you did a great one on this.
