Klimt Kiss Stained Glass Panel
by Gustav Klimt
from Osterreichische Galerie,
Dimensions: 5" x 7"
The timeless romance of Gustav Klimt's (Austrian, 1862-1918) beloved work The Kiss is reproduced in our brilliant stained glass panel. Klimt devoted much of his time to architectural decoration and considerably influenced the decorative arts in Austria. His paintings are large allegorical canvases which combine linear construction and rich colors, often a world of beautiful women and nudes against a bejeweled background. Many of Klimt's works incorporate flowery fields, geometric patterns and flat metallics to create a rich decorative surface. He then breaks the rich surface with a subject, bringing the focus in on intimate detail painted with delicate subtlety.

The museum is housed in the Belvedere Palace, which Prince Eugene of Savoy had built as a summer residence. There are two palace buildings: the Upper and Lower Belvedere. The Kiss is housed in the Upper Belvedere with works by Biedermeier artists, French Impressionists and other world masterpieces.
