Virgin

Gustav Klimt

Gustav Klimt - Virgin
Art Nouveau was contemporary to symbolism, shading into each other. In Klimt’s art, symbolism often shows in erotically tinged topics. It is also the case of his painting The Virgin of 1913 in the centre of which the dreaming sensuality of a young girl draws attention. This virtuous painting is combined with a stylistic shortcut. The Virgin holds an exceptional position in Klimt’s oeuvre.
