“Whoever wants to know something about me, they should look attentively at my pictures and there seek to recognise what I am and what I want.”
Gustav Klimt was forceful, dramatic, unrepentant. His “Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer” is arguably the most well-known thanks to the book and movie, “The Lady in Gold.”
Today, I am celebrating Gustav Klimt’s birthday with his paintings of two gardens: Kirche in Cassone (1913) and Avenue in the Park of Schloss Kammer (1912).
Gustav Klimt said that we could recognize him in his paintings. What better way to celebrate his birthday than visualizing him with a paintbrush in hand intent on capturing the essence of a garden.
