Gustav Klimt (Austrian, 1862–1918)
The Kiss, 1908–1909

Produced at the height of Gustav Klimt’s gold period, The Kiss has become the artist’s most recognizable work. This lovers’ embrace, amid a wildflower meadow, retains its allure more than a century after it was painted.

In turn-of-the-century Austria, a culture of prudishness and moral rectitude was collapsing and a new order was being born. A leading member of the Vienna Secession, Klimt produced works of startling power, symbolism, and eroticism. His paintings that we now see as graceful, quietly sensual, and profoundly appreciative of their subjects were positively frightening to Austrian sensibility at the time. Today, Klimt is characterized as a radical agent of change who defied artistic convention.

With subjects ranging from fine art, nature, and architecture to humor, the metaphysical, and more, Pomegranate’s interlocking jigsaw puzzles combine stunning images, superb color reproduction, and sturdy construction to delight generations of novice and veteran puzzle solvers alike.

About: Gustav Klimt

From his earliest paintings, Gustav Klimt (Austrian, 1862–1918) disclosed the persistent themes of his art: the longings and fears of the human psyche. At the turn of the 20th century, Austrian society was in a state of turbulent change. A culture of prudishness and moral rectitude was collapsing and a new order was being born. The art world saw a clash between the bland, rigid establishment style and the emerging power, eroticism, and symbolism of works by the Vienna Secession—a group cofounded by Klimt. His sensual paintings are as alluring today as they were to his contemporaries. Klimt is the most famous of the Viennese Secessionists and one of the leading painters of Art Nouveau.
