The Maiden - Gustav Klimt

The Maiden occupies a special place in the work of Gustav Klimt. Its key theme is the relationship between beauty, youth, mortality and the celebration of young life. Klimt painted it in his last creative period, when the theme of the "femme fatale" gave way to the dreamy sensuality of a young girl. His virtuoso drawing was combined with a stylized planar abbreviation and intense colors. The Virgin sleeps peacefully under a blanket decorated with flowers and spirals. For Klimt, a sleeping person is not responsible for his desires. He depicted an innocent virgin captivated by her sweet and luscious dreams.

The artwork in a nutshell

The Maiden occupies a special place in the work of Gustav Klimt. Its key theme is the relationship between beauty, youth, mortality and the celebration of young life.

The artist

Born into a family of artisans, Gustav Klimt (1862 - 1918) entered the School of Decorative Arts in Vienna at the age of 14 and learned painting and mosaics. The Viennese artist began as a decorative painter on bourgeois villas. In love with art, he gets closer to the symbolist circles and wishes to promote modern art. Dreaming of reconciling painting and architecture, his status as a craftsman prevented him from being recognized as a full-fledged artist, as a barrier existed between the decorative arts and the arts considered as major. Revolted by this state of affairs, Klimt joined the Secessionist group in 1887 and even became its president, eager to promote Viennese art on an international level. An artist who was as much criticized as he was renowned, he moved away from the decorative arts towards the end of his life and turned to Fauvism, which he considered avant-garde.
