Glasses Sunglasses Pouch: Gustav Klimt, The Kiss

With this eyeglasses or sunglasses pouch you will get the most stunning product. It is a real eye catcher and a lovely product to carry in your bag.
"The Kiss" (Lovers) is one of the more important works of the Austrian Symbolist painter Gustav Klimt. It was painted during the highpoint of his "Golden Period" (1907-1908), together with a number of works in a similar gilded style, soon after his three-part Vienna Ceiling series, which created a scandal and were criticized as both 'pornography' and evidence of 'perverted excess'. The works had recast the artist as an "enfant terrible" for his anti-authoritarian and anti-popularist views on art.
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.
