Malcesine on Lake Garda

Artist of The Week: Gustav Klimt ⁠

Klimt choose the small town of Malcesine as the subject for what can arguably be called one of His greatest Masterpieces.

Such a unique quality can be seen in his depiction of Malcesine

Bright colours and dramatic distinctions between the different buildings echo the fact that his views while on the lake were superb

Infact, this work is a notable departure from the more claustrophobic styles which tended to characterise his other paintings while in Austria

The ultimate result is a painting which exhibits warm pastels, flavour that have that have to define Lake Grada as a whole.

Many have uses this artwork to reproduce on Fabric like the brand Robert Kaufman.
