Perhaps Gustav Klimt's most famous work, The Kiss, depicts a couple embracing, their bodies entwined in elaborately decorated robes. Our Klimt The Kiss scarf beautifully captures the golden hues of this painting which was influenced by the contemporary art nouveau style and the organic forms of the earlier arts and crafts movement. This square scarf can also be worn as a beautiful shawl or used as a creative window or wall hanging. Our fine art scarves have hand rolled and sewn edges and are made of the finest mulberry silk.
Gustav Klimt 1862 - 1918
Gustav Klimt was an Austrian symbolist painter, whose primary subject was the female body. This painting was done between 1907 and 1908 during the highpoint of his "Golden Period", when he painted a number of works in a similar gilded style. Klimt's use of gold was inspired by a trip he had made to Italy in 1903 and he started to make unprecedented use of gold and silver leaf in his own work. Unlike some of Klimt's works, "The Kiss" painting was enthusiastically received and is considered his most famous work.
