The son of a Viennese engraver, the painter Gustav Klimt (Austrian, 18621918) became a leader of the Sezession (Secession), an association of artists founded in 1897 to challenge the prevailing academic conservatism prevalent in turn-of-the-century Vienna. His highly ornamental style reveals the close connection between Symbolism and parallel movements in the decorative arts, such as Art Nouveau.
Gustave Klimt (Austrian, 18621918) painted The Kiss between 1908 and 1909, the peak of his “Golden Period.” Our glowing cards are adapted from this iconic work. 16 holographic foil-stamped notecards and 16 envelopes in a keepsake box. 4 7/8” x 6 1/4”.
