This oil-on-canvas created by Austrian painter Gustav Klimt has become his most popular work. The painting depicts a couple embracing each other, their bodies entwined in elaborate beautiful robes decorated in a style influenced by the contemporary Art Nouveau style. It was first exhibited under the title Liebespaar (The Lovers).

Besides paint, Klimt used gold leaf, silver and platinum in this work. He was inspired to use gold leaf after visiting Italian churches in which he saw Byzantine mosaics.

Klimt himself may be the man in painting, however this has not been proven. If it is in fact Klimt, this would be the artist’s only known self-portrait.

About the Artist

Gustav Klimt

Gustav Klimt (1862 — 1918) was an Austrian symbolist painter and one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Secession movement. Klimt is noted for his paintings, murals, sketches, and other objects d'art. Klimt's primary subject was the female body, and his works are marked by a frank eroticism.
