Hand painted oil reproduction of a famous Klimt painting, The Kiss Full view. The original masterpiece was created in 1907-08. Today it has been carefully recreated detail-by-detail, color-by-color to near perfection.
Gustav Klimt, the Vienna master painted the Kiss oil painting in 1907. The painting depicts a couple surrounded by a gold blanket and ornaments sharing a moment of shear passion - the perfect kiss. In the oil and gold masterpiece, the man appears standing as he holds in his arms the kneeling woman. The two seem to be positioned on a flower field, kissing, totally engaged with one another. The woman seems to be following the lead of her partner, but is not taking an active part. The patterns of the man are mostly black and white rectangles, while the woman is engulfed in flowers. The identity of the people depicted in this oil painting is not exactly clear; some suggest that it is Klimt himself and his beloved partner, Emilie Floge. However, that is sheer speculation as Klimt made it a point never to paint himself.
Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) was one of the most innovative and controversial artists of the early twentieth century. Influenced by European avant-garde movements represented in the annual Secession exhibitions, Klimt's mature style combines richly decorative surface patterning with complex symbolism and allegory, often with overtly erotic content. This work of art has the same emotions and beauty as the original. Why not grace your home with this reproduced masterpiece? It is sure to bring many admirers!

I couldn't be any happier with this purchase!!! First of all it's a steal at this price, my husband asked me several times how much I paid for this because he just couldn't believe it. Superior packaging, not just a painting thrown into a box, heavy cardboard corners then bubble wrapped then a thick layer of heavy gauged paper encased the frame of the picture in the main box. Very professionally done!!! The painting & the frame came without any flaws, the frame very solid thick piece of wood. The painting was just breathtaking, I've wanted this painting for years, I'm so glad I waited to finally purchase it from Buy.com.
