"The Kiss", "The Lovers" / "Liebespaar" by Gustav Klimt
Created: between 1907 and 1908 Location: Österreichische Galerie Belvedere, Austria
Gustav Klimt's most famous painting - The Kiss is a realistic yet geometric depiction of a kissing couple, completed. What makes this piece different than the other oil paintings on the list is that it also incorporates gold leaf on canvas (in addition to oils).
Gustav Klimt depicts the couple locked in an intimate embrace against a gold, flat background. The two figures are situated at the edge of a patch of flowery meadow that ends under the woman's exposed feet. The man wears a robe printed with geometric patterns and subtle swirls. He wears a crown of vines while the woman wears a crown of flowers. She is shown in a flowing dress with floral patterns.
The man's face is not shown to the audience and instead, his face is bent downward to press a kiss to the woman's cheek, and his hands are cradling the woman's face. Her eyes are closed, with one arm wrapped around the man's neck, the other resting gently on his hand, and her face is upturned to receive the man's kiss.

Who is the artist? Gustav Klimt, 1862-1918, Austrian
Gustav Klimt was an Austrian symbolist painter and one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Secession movement.
Klimt is noted for his paintings, murals, sketches, and other objets d'art. Klimt's primary subject was the female body, and his works are marked by a frank eroticism.
Early in his artistic career, he was a successful painter of architectural decorations in a conventional manner.
