by Gustav Klimt

Love it or Your Money Back

Music - Description

Austrian Symbolist Gustav Klimt painted Music in the 1895. This painting is a classical arrangement as can be seen in the way that the subject is dressed and by the architecture filling the space in the lower part of the canvas. The subject is playing a yellow harp and is lost in a world of sound just as the viewer is meant to get lost in the harmony of this piece. The subject sits perfectly balanced with the statue to the right of the piece. There is a mystic quality prevalent in this work that characterizes most Symbolic work, a dreamlike atmosphere meant to act as nothing more than a painting to ease the mind and eyes of its viewers who must toil constantly in a world filled with strife while the harp player plucks the strings eternally. The paintings title, Music, invites the viewer to created their own melody in their head. The style is that of Art Nouveau or new art and has Symbolic roots. Klimts pallet paints the picture of a somber and peaceful setting. Hints of blue play off of solid planes of yellow, complimenting and not clashing. Barriers between color are created without the use of a heavy line, indicating precision and a freedom between colors that is common in many of Kimts works apart from his later series of collages.
