Artist's Copy of the Kiss by Gustav Klimt
Long-time readers of my blog might remember that last year I won a blogging award from Casey Klahn for the entry I made about my trip to Vienna to see live Gustav Klimt's "The Kiss"
In Italy this past August ], I wanted to recreate this artwork in the streets of Portofino, a charming coast town on a northern Italy peninsula. But the police and city hall were having none of it (streetpainting), despite our having found a few small surfaces on which we could have created some art in chalk and pastel without being in the way of pedestrians or cars. Boh!
Anyway, as it happens, there seem to be a lot of requests for copies of famous artworks, Klimt's "Kiss" being one of the favorites. So, I broke down and painted one in mixed media. My copy of the famous painting is only 22" x 18" -- MUCH smaller than the original.
I hope you like her. She is available for sale . . . only $1600. Oh, and I did not recreate the coloring that I noticed in the original artwork. I decided to keep the whole image pretty much warm and keep the romance going . . .
