|Park of Schönbrunn (1916) by Gustav Klimt|
This is another landscape painting involving water by Austrian artist Gustav Klimt. This time it's a bit of a puzzle.
The painting is of a lake in a Schönbrunn Park in Vienna, Austria. Last November I tried to do a copy of this painting - see Schönbrunn Park - after Klimt - but I think the original is soooooo much better!
I like the fact that it's a puzzle picture. You have to stare at it for a bit before you realise this is a painting of a large expanse of water in the middle of a very green park. Most of the reflections are quite subtle. The only really significant clue are the clouds in the bottom right hand corner which are only hinted at in the top right corner. You still have to look at it again to make sure this isn't some isolated pond reflecting the sky.
I like paintings which are not obvious!
