  •      I always enjoy painting with Klimt but there are sooo many details. They just go on and on.
         I have done  "The Kiss by Klimt" so many times and never get tired of it as it is my favorite
         his.  I already did a Klimt with a harp but it was so popular I thought I would try another.
         I used a lot of Metallics in this one just as Klimt did in many of his paintings.
         It is very hard to capture metallic's with a camera. I used 3 shades of red and over layed
         them as glazes along with deep gold, sienna's, blacks, blues, green and whites. Enjoy!

Feb. 6, 1918,  founder of the school of painting known as the Vienna Sezession, embodies the high-keyed erotic, psychological, and aesthetic preoccupations of turn-of-the-century Vienna's dazzling intellectual world.

He has been called the preeminent exponent of ART NOUVEAU. Klimt began (1883) as an artist-decorator in association with his brother and Franz Matsoh. In 1886-92, Klimt executed mural decorations for staircases at the Burg theater and the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna; these confirmed Klimt's eclecticism and broadened his range of historical references. Klimt was a co-founder and the first president of the Vienna Secession, a group of modernist architects and artists who organized their own exhibition society and gave rise to the SECESSION MOVEMENT, or the Viennese version of Art Nouveau. He was also a frequent contributor to Ver Sacrum, the group's journal. The primal forces of sexuality, regeneration, love, and death form the dominant themes of Klimt's work. His paintings of femme fatales
