Portrait of Eugenia Primavesi, detail, by Gustav Klimt

Gustav Klimt

The Kiss is probably Gustav Klimt’s most famous work. It's also the high point of the artist’s Gold Period, characterized by his use of gold leaf in his work. This painting is one in which Klimt deviated from his portrayal of dominant in women in the form of a femme fatale. Instead is the portrayal of love & art, a couple locked in a golden-flecked, flower-filled embrace. It is rumored that Klimt and his longtime companion, Emile Floge, also said to be his lover, were the models of the painting.
