Malcesine sul Garda - Description

Austrian Symbolist painter Gustav Klimt created Malcesine sul Garda in 1913. This Italian seascape was painted in the ornate manner of Art Nouveau, a style that developed in the waning years of the nineteenth century and was highlighted by Gustav Klimts Viennese Secession in 1897. As shown in this painting, the buildings are shimmering in gold and reflect mystically onto the water in the foreground. The painting is pleasing to the eye for a reason. This style was designed primarily as a method of escaping from the ornery every day world. Malcesine sul Garda was created with the intention of entertaining and forcing its viewers to contemplate its beauty. As a viewer you are invited to become dazed by the shimmering spectacle and imagine the towns inhabitants milling about in their homes and on the streets in Malcesine sul Garda. The painting carries a dreamlike presence beginning with the swirling water at its base. The water meets a hard line at the shore which carries on to govern the forms of the rest of the painting. Though the painting is created with the intention of symbolism, it is not related to the overall meaning of the piece. Due to the personal nature of the symbolic references painted in Malcesine sul Garda, the viewer is meant to assume their own discoveries based on the evidence that they draw.
