The Kiss oil on canvas detail of Klimt Gustav Osterreichische Galerie Belvedere Vienna Austria The Bridgeman Art Library
Gustav Klimt's "The Kiss" is characteristic of his work: erotically charged, dazzlingly embellished and rich in gleaming gold tones. "The Kiss," created in 1907-1908, is one of Klimt's most transcendent images. Only the faces and hands of this couple are visible; all the rest is great swirls of gold, as if to express the loss of self that lovers experience. Klimt, (1862-1918) an Austrian iconoclast, rose from childhood impoverishment to become an artist of enormous significance to the Viennese Secession and Art Nouveau movement styles.
This giclée print delivers a vivid image with maximum color accuracy and exceptional resolution. The standard for museums and galleries around the world, giclée is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are “sprayed” onto high-quality paper. With the great degree of detail and smooth transitions of color gradients, giclée prints appear much more realistic than other reproduction prints. The high-quality paper (235 gsm) is acid free with a smooth surface.
