This is one of those unexpected paintings of Gustav Klimt. It was painted in 1907 as the artist was moving a bit into Impressionism while at the same time incorporating traditional realist techniques within his work. During the period, Klimt slightly steered away from his colleagues and his trademark mosaic gold-engulfed pieces, to accentuated paintings of landscapes. The artist had travelled for a few summers to Lake Attersee, where he focused on illustrating the beauty around him, turning away from allegorical portraits, metaphysical symbolism, and realist detail. That didn't bring him as much popularity as his Art Nouveau style that manifested his Gold Phase, but still they are very charming (and green!).
As the summer is slowly beginning to end, we hope this painting will bring you some pleasure and good memories. : )
P.S. When we think Klimt, we all have The Kiss in front of our eyes, but there's so much more! There are more beautiful landscapes painted by this Art Nouveau master; read about his love for painting trees here. <3
