Garden Path with Chickens - Description

Garden Path with Chickens was painted in 1916 by Austrian Symbolist Gustav Klimt. This garden landscape shows a path leading through a mysterious garden whose leaves and flowers take the abstract shapes of the artists imagination. The chickens, painted against a background bearing overtones of the colors found in the garden, occupy the visual center of this path, where the eye is led into the heart of this magical realm. Garden Path with Chickens was done in the style of Art Nouveau, a French movement that developed in the last years of the nineteenth century. Gustav Klimts interest in Art Nouveau can be seen in the way that nature seems to engulf the entire painting. Visually there is no way out of this realm. It is as if the viewer is taken to another place not of this earth. The chickens for that matter appear as engrossed with the scenery as the viewer might be, for the garden rises all around and leads only into an even thicker center where the path disappears. Notice the endless pattern of swirls and circles appearing in the flowered garden and the pattern of gigantic leaves. Garden Path with Chickens, it could be argued, might altogether be a symbolic reference to a femme fatale fantasy so often suggested in Klimts work. The chickens, a metaphor for a bewildered man appear lost and dominated by the surrounding mass of mother nature. As they walk further into her seemingly fertile bosom there is no indication that they will ever walk out again.
