Life Tree - Description

Life Tree by Gustav Klimt is a collage created around the year 1909. This collage was created with paper cutouts and is of a golden hue common to may of Klimts pieces. The background compliments the golden hue with its off white color. Life Trees branches, a great mass of swirls, act as a fitting background for this busy piece. Characters stand balanced on opposite sides of the painting, though camouflaged some amongst the complimentary colors of their garb. In their garments one can see Klimts handiwork in his trademark repetition of geometric patterns, specifically circles and triangles. The effect heightens the fact that the characters are actually comprised of many different parts. Klimts subjects carry a majestic weight to them and are indicative of power and radiance. This Symbolist painter created Life Tree with the intention of offering it as an escape where the viewer can retreat to from a world that is ordinary, dull and full of strife. The mystic qualities associated with the gold color are heightened by the possibility of abstraction appearing in the clothing and on the ground. The viewer is meant to get lost in a world of possibility and imagination when gazing into this Symbolic collage by created by the leader of the Viennese Secession that shook the foundations of the Austrian art world in 1897.
