Death and Life by Gustav Klimt - Famous Art - Handmade Oil Painting on Canvas


Like his contemporaries Egon Schiele and Edvard Munch, Gustav Klimt was also obsessed with death. However, rather than portraying the theme in a dark and course manner, Klimt’s approach, as evidenced in his works during the Golden period, is kind of hopeful and reconciliatory. The colors used are wild and colorful, the style is florid, and the overall picture deviates from the usual portrayals of death. In this painting, death is standing facing a group of people huddled together in a stylish and floral manner. There is something youthful and lively in the painting, despite the presence of death, despite its inevitability. This is what characterized and separated Klimt’s works from the others.
