More About Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I by Gustav Klimt
As the title itself states, the of Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I is the first of the two painting created by Gustav Klimt.
However, the first one remains more recognized and appreciated of the two.
The painting although a gorgeous representation of a feminine beauty was also a depiction of a tragic story of a Jewish in hand of the Nazis.
Klimt was believed to have an affair with Adele which made him put her in a pedestal with the fancy ornamented dress and elegant positioning of hands and fingers.
Like Klimt’s Judith, Adele also has a disjointed head and body.
Most importantly this painting was one of the most elaborate portrait to have used the Byzantine gold mosaic concept.
Very few people know that it were only the hands and face of Adele that were painted in oil, the rest of the artwork was done with gold and silver leaves.
Gesso was also applied into the painting to add decorative motifs.
What’s stunning is the way the dress absolutely blends into the background with her limbs creating a stark contrast.
The painting comes out as a sensual embodiment and symbol of feminity.
The details, patterns and the multitudes provided in the painting gives Adele a look of a goddess.
Reportedly, the painting was bought by a gentleman for $135 Million.
Interesting, but what if I told you that you could own it for a couple of dollars.
