Public domain ← → The Kiss Gustav Klimt Date: 1907 - 1908 Style: Art Nouveau (Modern) Period: Golden phase Genre: genre painting Media: oil, canvas Dimensions: 180 x 180 cm Location: Belvedere, Vienna, Austria Tags: couples Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Kiss_(Klimt) Order an oil painting reproduction Ad Image dimension 585x600px, View all sizes The Kiss is probably Gustav Klimt’s most famous work. It is also the high point of the artist’s Gold Period, which was characterized by his use of gold leaf in his work. This painting is one in which Klimt deviated from his portrayal of dominant in women in the form of a femme fatale. Instead is the portrayal of love and art, a couple locked in a golden-flecked, flower-filled embrace. Klimt was a man with an unbridled sexual appetite, as he fathered at least 14 illegitimate children. It is rumored that Klimt and his longtime companion, Emile Floge, who was also said to be his lover, were the models of the painting, which was selected to be printed on the Austrian 100 euro coin, minted in 2003.
