About Klimt Wall Clock - Round - The Kiss (1907)
This Klimt Wall Clock is a representation of Gustav Klimt's most recognizable painting: The Kiss ( 1907). The wall clock is produced in elaborate crystal glass and has luxury decoration with real real gold plating.
The Kiss has enchanted audiences since its completion in 1908. Today, the awe-inspiring piece is housed in Vienna’s esteemed Österreichische Galerie Belvedere, though its illustrious legacy transcends Klimt’s Austrian roots. As member of the Secessionist Movement and a pioneer of Symbolism – a European genre of art characterized by mystical motifs, a personal approach to the visual arts, and an aesthetic similar to the contemporaneous Art Nouveau and Arts and Crafts movements – Gustav Klimt took an avant-garde approach to painting. His distinctive style is particularly apparent in The Kiss, which was painted during his luminous “Golden Period”. Works produced during this time feature pronounced planes and delicate detailing made of gold leaf. Inspired by Byzantine mosaics, this gilding gives each piece a glimmering appearance that accentuates the ethereal nature of Klimt’s subject matter and style.
