    Jul 14, 1862 - Feb 6, 1918
  • Apple Tree I - Gustav Klimt 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 - nowhere is this more apparent than in his numerous drawings in pencil.

    Gustav Klimt's smooth landscape transcends through traditional techniques to a modernist presence.

    Apple Tree I painted near the end of Klimt's career in 1912 showcases his tribute to the classic landscape style, steering away from metallic shades and intricate patterns.

    The Apple Tree I, as evident through its title illustrate a grand apple tree painted in multi colours bearing red fruit off of the branches.

    The painting is seized by an array of shapes and colours, blending into the lush greenery within the background. The landscape steers away from traditional linear patterns into a swirl of shapes descending outside of the branches.

    The mosaic styled piece accentuates the bright colours while organically highlighting the landscape in a modern form. Klimt had strategically worried within the painting to portray the illusion of depth, even while using bright colours is a modern displaced form.

    The viewer is able to witness that the painting deepens towards the middle of the piece, instead of a flat surface. This method enabled Klimt to incorporate a landscape into the textured piece in relation to the apple tree an the meadow.

    The focal point of the piece if based on the grand apple tree located within the middle of the painting. The tree holds a circular shape, levelled closely to the ground as the trunk grows as a column upwards. Out the sides of the brown trunk in a perpendicular form, multiple thin branches grow.

    Bright shades of dark and light green, paired with dark and light blues hold as the foundation of the colour scheme throughout the leaves. Bright red shaped apples hang in abundance on the branches along the tree, adding a pop of colour to the mosaic of blue and green.

    The landscape of the plain is seized through a colourful meadow, with linear coloured small brush strokes illustrating grass. The green coloured grass deepens the painting, and is transparent through the apple tree elongating the landscape. Bright coloured flowers fill the meadow with red, purple light pink and white flowers with a yellow middle at the bottom of the painting.

    Small yellow flowers fill the remainder of the painting, again transparent through the apple tree. Behind the apple tree, the viewer is able to witness another darker coloured green tree in the background, and a glimpse of the bright blue sky letting in a thin white stray of light.

    The positive painting steers away from Klimt's highly recognized gold colour work, however encompasses a classic modern style paired with an array of bright colours. The rich glow throughout the piece based on the array of shades, paints a welcoming optimistic piece while illustrating the beauty of nature in all of its form.

The picture looks great, the colours and brush strokes really bring it to life. Can't wait to have it stretched, framed and hung in our entrance way. A great addition to the house! Looks great with the original proportions 48x48"

Gustav KlimtGustav Klimt was born in Baumgarten, near Vienna, Austria. He was educated at the Vienna Kunstgewerbe Art School in the years 1879-1883. Klimt was also an honorary member of the Universities of Munich and Vienna. His major works include paintings, murals, sketches and other art objects, many of which are on display in the Vienna Secession gallery. His work is distinguished by an elegant use of gold backgrounds and mosaic patterns. This can be seen in Judith I (1901), and in The Kiss (1907). Art historians note an eclectic range of influences contributing to Klimt's distinct style, including Egyptian, Minoan, Classical Greek, and Byzantine inspirations. Klimt was also inspired by engravings of Albrecht Dürer, late medieval European painting, and Japanese Ukiyo-e. Klimt was one of the founding members of the Wiener Sezession (Vienna Secession) and of the periodical Ver Sacrum. He left the movement in 1908. He died in Vienna of pneumonia and was interred at the Hietzing Cemetery, Vienna.
