art I've been looking at.....


Stoclet Frieze by Gustav Klimt.

I really connect with this piece. I've been thinking/trying to make some things that are botanical, decorative-but-not. I'm looking hard at art like this....

Comments:
Very interesting. . . Is it a mosaic? It's hard to tell the medium with some online pics. . .
 
tulip--it is actually an oil painting, though I THINK Klimt used gold leaf on some of his oils....there's a great website: iklimt.com or is it .org? Anyway, I love aspects of his work. (Be warned--much of his work is sensual and some of drawings I would consider pornographic.)
