the arts: hope II

Gustav Klimt // Hope II (1907-08)

The Austrian symbolist painter deals with the balance of birth, death, prayer, mourning and vibrancy through the pregnant woman as she looks down at her belly. There are certain paintings of Gustav that have made me a fan. The fact that he is a symbolist painter is something that I adore as well as his choice of color, textures and contrasts in other paintings as well.
