Lady with Hat and Feather Boa - Description

Lady with Hat and Feather Boa was painted by Austrian Symbolist painter Gustav Klimt in 1909. Klimt places his stern subject at a distance from the viewer here by hiding her face between a large hat and an equally gigantic feather boa that rests upon her shoulders. Upon glancing at this painting for the first time one might be inclined to dismiss it as the antithesis of eroticism, a sharp contrast to the majority of Klimts female subjects. Look further at the wild mass of red hair spilling out between the layers of fur and clothing. The hair embraces the landscape almost perfectly, swirling into the background in a sultry wave of amber. Beneath the layers of hat and feather boa Klimt depicts rosy skin that compliments the red hue. Klimt chooses to expose merely a portion of the upper lip and two eyes that gaze somewhat judgingly off of the canvas. She takes an indifferent approach to the viewer which indicates a feeling of superiority and power. Lady with Hat and Feather Boa depicts an ocean of color and emotion spilling out of its surrounding shell. The darkness around her head acts like bread to a sandwich. The heaviness of its tone holds the piece together in firm balance and the effect is that her luminous and mysterious beauty is too full of life to be contained between it.
