About Gustav Klimt Statue Knight (1902)

This hand painted resin Gustav Klimt Statue Knight (1902) is a three dimensional faithful representation of the Knight figure included in the Vienna Secessionist artist, Gustav Klimt's work "The Beethoven Frieze" produced in 1902. The Beethoven Frieze originally intended to be removed shortly after its first exhibition, but later decided to keep it for the Klimt retrospective exhibition the Vienna Secession was hosting the following year. In the Beethoven Frieze Klimt explores the perpetual quest of humanity for happiness. The frieze is divided in three important sections, and one of these depicts a knight as an allegorical figure representing humanity on his journey towards finding human salvation and therefore happiness. This three dimensional representation is made in resin and is masterfully hand painted, it is part of Parastone's “Mouseion” Collection, devoted to making faithful three-dimensional representations of timeless masterpieces.

    Gustav Klimt was a controversial Austrian symbolist painter during his time. Klimt’s main subject in his work was the female body and the beauty of femininity. Art community heavily criticized his art for being too sensual and erotic. Today, they’ve proven to be some of the most memorable paintings ever to emerge from the Vienna Secession movement. He furthered and advocated for the Art Nouveau movement (also known as Jugendstil in Germany). Eventually, he remains one of the most talented decorative painters of the 20th century. Klimt’s “Golden Phase” is quite possibly his most widely recognized period of art. This period emerged following positive reactions to his work and some financial success. The Golden Phase period included a large variety of paintings created with gold leaf in their production. Many of his works during this time, were very popular due to, in part, this utilization of gold with paint. While Klimt never saw much merit or fame from his work during his life, he has reached immortality in death and has greatly influenced the art community after his passing. Musart is proud to showcase the work of such a genius pioneer, who was incredibly important to the ongoing conversation of the art community as a whole.
