Gustav Klimt Embossed Boxed Notecards

$16.95

The foremost Austrian exponent of Art Nouveau and the most famous of the Viennese Secessionists, Gustav Klimt (1862–1918) created highly decorative murals and sensual portraits, both of which drew upon his skills and interests as a graphic designer. He placed heavy emphasis on line and ornamentation, and he incorporated a variety of materials—buttons, glass, gold, and semiprecious stones—that enhance the mosaic quality of his images. This set of embossed notecards features adaptations of the iconic swirls and patterns from Gustav Klimt’s imaginative compositions Danae, Fulfillment I, Fulfillment II, and Expectation. Please note: the images are not printed with ink. The shapes of the illustrations are embossed on high-quality recycled paper.
• 12 assorted cream-colored embossed notecards (3 each of 4 designs) with envelopes in a decorative box
• Produced using high-quality uncoated recycled paper
• Soft white envelopes

Box size: 5.375 x 6.875 x 1.25 in.
Card size: 4.75 x 6 in.

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.
