"Adele Bloch-Bauer I" (1907, Wien). DETAIL: Paintings inside paintings. Studded with precious metals. Opulent patchwork of ornaments, where Mycenaean gold mingles with Byzantium. Creating the overall impression of a religious idol. This is Klimt’s expression of the decadent, morbid passion for jewelry. However, the triumph of this goddess is also her prison, captured in her precious tapestries, sealed alive inside a wall of gems.

Gustav Klimt- I like the composition of the painting and the rustic colors, the painting seems almost mysterious.
