Gustav Klimt, Austrian, “Meadow in Flower.” Most of us are familiar with Klimt’s popular decorative figure paintings from what is called his “Golden Period.” Here is one of his lesser known landscapes. Look past the impressionist brushwork to the structure of the painting. The darker tree shapes form an inverted triangle, while the brighter greens and floral notes of the meadow rise into a central form not unlike that of the figures in “The Kiss,” one of Klimt’s most iconic works. Two idioms, similar compositions. Klimt produced many floral and verdant landscape paintings. I encourage you to seek them out and enjoy a little regarded facet of his vision.
