The Kiss by Gustav Klimt- Famous Art - Handmade Oil Painting on Canvas


During the height of his "Golden Period," Gustav Klimt painted, with many mediums, his most famous painting now recognized worldwide. Glimmering with gold leaf, 'The Kiss' evokes passion and tenderness. With no defined background, the distribution of full spaces and empty spaces is harmonious and make for a perfectly balanced composition. As the couple painted (almost abstractly) in 'The Kiss,' evolved from the meadow, their cape and cloaks envelope them as they are lost in time to the surrender of their love. The male is fully plunging into the near erotic moment of the lovers. His cloak is filled with dimension at the sight of the geometric shapes, dark and clear colors which are powerful male symbols. As the lady of the lovers succumbs to the tender hands and near body of the one whom she loves, she is clad in symbols which represent femininity and maternity. The open flowers symbolize female sensuality. Front to front, lost to the ever evolving world around them, Klimt's intentions are clear, 'The Kiss' is a powerful and alluring depiction of the erotic allusion to mankind's sexuality. The euphoria of being lost in love and seeking love for its own sake. This is now a permanent display at The Österreichische Galerie Belvedere, Vienna, Austria.
