Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I by Klimt
Counted cross stitch chart or kit from the Scarlet Quince Art Nouveau Fine Art Collection.
Gustav Klimt (July 14, 1862 – February 6, 1918) was an Austrian Symbolist painter and one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Secession movement. His major works include paintings, murals, sketches, and other art objects. Klimt's primary subject was the female body, and his works are marked by a frank eroticism.
Adele Bloch-Bauer, a notable Viennese hostess and wife of a wealthy sugar merchant, in a fanciful golden gown with Byzantine motifs. Klimt painted her in a shower of gold reminiscent of Zeus' golden shower upon Danae, so that it is hard to tell where the dress ends and the background begins. The original painting was plundered by the Nazis and only returned recently to the rightful heirs, who sold it in 2006 for a record $135 million. (Art Nouveau, 1907)
