Artwork of the day

The Kiss, Gustav Klimt, 1907-8, oil on canvas, Osterreichische Galerie Belvedere, Vienna, Austria
In the beginning of the 20th century, Vienna was an international city experiencing a cultural, artistic and economic growth. New ideas flourished and Gustav Klimt developed his distinctive style, which is easily recognizable even by amateur art historians. The Kiss representing Klimt and Emilie Flȍge is one of the most recognizable paintings of the artist exhibiting the powerful colours of his style and the sensuality that underlines most of his work.
