For me it has always been “Gustav Klimt” and his famous painting called “The Kiss”
Gustav Klimt was an Austrian symbolist painter and a member of the Vienna Art Nouveau movement. He shocked Art critics with his unorthodox techniques and provocative themes.
“The Kiss” depicts two lovers teetering on the edge of a flower field or meadow. It was first presented in 1908 as unfinished.
What I love about this picture is the energy of love it depicts. They are on blended knee and the colours of their robes are as vibrant as their loving embrace. It was created as an outdoor memory as they adorned hand made crowns on their heads.
For me this picture portrays the moment one truly feels loved, accepted, respected, adorned,valued and free to be yourself!
Needless to say I bought the coffee mug!
