Painters Work Gustav Klimt (1862 – 1918): Farm Backyard with Sunflowers, 1905-6, Oil on canvas, 110 x 110 cm, Österreichische Galerie Belvedere, Vienna, Austria
This portray originates in Villa Oleander, in Kammer on Lake Attersee, the place Klimt spent his summer season holidays. Resulting from a really skinny lake shore in Kammer adopted by a steep slope the geographical state of affairs determines the character of this portray.
Klimt makes right here radical use of the diagonal to attach the foreground and background. It’s characterised by cheerfulness.
Just like van Gogh, whose artwork was repeatedly studied by Klimt, the foreground is given prominence and seen as significantly significant, its materiality emphasised and depicted exactly in luminous colours. The flowers are built-in in a well-considered method, within the ingenious relationship of their refined coloration. With a view to draw consideration to – or amplify – their impression, a inexperienced meadow is counterpoised.
