Hope II is an oil-on-canvas painting with added gold and platinum by the Austrian symbolist artist Gustav Klimt. Klimt painted this stunning piece in 1907–08. It depicts a pregnant woman with closed eyes with her head bowed down toward her belly and bared breasts. The woman’s eyes are closed and one hand, its fingers curled, is raised so that the palm faces away from her. Perhaps she is praying. She is wearing a colorful shawl, which is intricately patterned with swirls and circles evocative of sperm and ova, respectively. A grey skull-cum-death’s head peers out from behind her belly. Beneath the woman and partially enshrouded by her shawl are three women who assume the same position of bent head, closed eyes, and raised hands possibly praying for the protection of her unborn child. This is the second of Klimt's works to focus on a pregnant woman, both depicting Herma, one of his favorite models.
