Gustav Klimt started out as a realist, but his realism was lyrical, soft, and sensuous, rather than rigid, which is rare among realist painters. Klimt’s painting, The Maiden, is typical of his later work in symbolism. This painting juxtaposing the naturalism of the human forms with the bright patterning is very much in the modern context. It will provide the student with the opportunity to personalize and improvise their own symbolic forms as they paint.
