Four Panel Carved Lacquer Screen after ‘The Kiss’ by Gustav Klimt
This contemporary four panel screen deicing the Kiss by Gustav Klimt is made of carved and painted lacquer with abundant use of gold, and is close in feeling to the original. However, the woman is depicted as being more Asian (Japanese)? than European. Made in Europe circa 1990.
‘The Kiss’ painted by Gustav Klimt between 1907 and 1908 was at the height of his “golden period” – named as such for his liberal use of gold flakes – “The Kiss” eloquently encapsulates the heady and decadence days of fin-de-siècle Vienna before the onset of World War I.
Dimensions: Each Panel measures 84 inches High 22 inches wide and 1 inch thick
