Gustav Klimt’s (1862–1918) daring artistic vision is on display in this design, which reproduces an iconic painting that captures his unique style. The Kiss is believed to depict the painter and Emilie Louise Flöge, an Austrian fashion designer. From the early 1890s until his last days the pair enjoyed a loyal, likely platonic, relationship.
Organic forms reminiscent of the Arts and Crafts movement as well as decorative patterns suggestive of Art Nouveau are present in the painting’s linear patterns and tender florals. The speckled golden shimmer of the background was attributed to his fascination of Byzantine religious mosaics seen during his travels in Venice and Ravenna. Traditional Japanese art inspired his flat backgrounds, done with gold leaf.
