Hair Barrette: Gustav Klimt, "The Kiss"

Hair Barrette: Gustav Klimt, The Kiss

"The Kiss" (Lovers) is the most famous work of the Austrian Symbolist painter Gustav Klimt, that he has painted during the highpoint of his Golden Period, between 1907-1908, together with other works in a similar gilded style. Klimt painted it soon after his three-part Vienna Ceiling series, which created a scandal, because they was criticized as both 'pornography' and evidence of 'perverted excess' and had recast the artist as an "enfant terrible" for his anti-authoritarian and anti-popularist views on art.
On the painting "The Kiss" you can see a perfect square, the canvas depicts a couple embracing, their bodies entwined in elaborate robes decorated in a style influenced by both linear constructs of the contemporary Art Nouveau style and the organic forms of the earlier Arts and Crafts movement.
The painting is exposed now in the Österreichische Galerie Belvedere museum in the Belvedere palace (Vienna). It is widely considered a masterpiece of the early modern period. It is a symbol of Vienna Jugendstil -- Viennese Art Nouveau -- and is considered Klimt's most popular work.
