Gustav Klimt Softback Notebook [$3.98 / £2.98]
A handy smART bookx notebook for Klimt fans everywhere.
When we launched in 2013 we were shocked to find that this, The Kiss by Gustav Klimt, rapidly became one of the most popular Fine Art notebooks we publish. Sure, it’s an iconic image, but to be more of a hit than say Monet’s Water Lilies or Van Gogh’s Sunflowers is going some! Why? The passing of Valentine's Day soon gave us the answer — if you’re looking for novel romantic gifts (and the budget isn’t going to stretch to a bespoke diamond ring) what better than to simply give your loved-one a Kiss.
Women today do love Klimt’s Art (our Tree of Life notebook is also very popular). With his opulent use of gold, Klimt is something of a late 19th Century Versace. So this is a small permanent gift which combines a kiss from you, some gold eloquence and a few tasteful flowers thrown in. It’s the perfect small romantic gift for women!

Cover: Tough matte paperback.
Artwork: High resolution prints of ‘The Kiss’ (front) & ‘Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer’ (back).
Dimensions: 20.3 x 12.7 cm / 8 x 5 inches. (A touch smaller than A5 but much bigger than A6 – it fits easily in a bag but not in a pocket.)
Interior: 95 pages of good quality pure white paper, all lined with 23 lines to a page. [Please note: This is a plain ruled notebook. There is no internal content pertaining to Gustav Klimt. We advise customers to use the search inside facility before purchasing.]
Matching Products: A larger 8 x 10 inch project (or composition) book and an address book. Search on 'klimt' & 'bookx' (don't forget the 'x').
Similar Products: We also publish a Gustav Klimt Tree of Life stationery set.

About Gustav Klimt, The Kiss & Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I
Gustav Klimt was an Austrian Modernist & Symbolist painter. Symbolism is a disparate artistic movement, a philosophy rather than an artistic style, in which the artist uses emblems to convey meaning. These emblems are often intensely personal making the resulting works difficult to interpret. In the case of Gustav Klimt this difficulty is compounded by the fact that he spoke very little publically about the motives behind his art.
Klimt’s art had such a heavy focus on the female form it is not surprising that, at times, he pushed the boundaries of public opinion. However, generally speaking he received much acclaim & financial success particularly at the pinnacle of his career—his Golden Phase— during which he created the two paintings on this notebook: The Kiss & Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I. During Klimt’s Golden Phase he would combine oil paint with layer upon layer of gold leaf intentionally leaving the surface flat to concentrate the viewer’s eye on the luster of gold. The result is an effect reminiscent of Byzantine art. It exudes opulence & is consequently as popular today as ever. (Adele Bloch-Bauer I sold for $135 million in 2006.)

The Kiss
The Kiss is possibly the most famous painting by Gustav Klimt. It depicts two lovers united in an embrace; the woman is almost entirely cocooned by the man’s arms which cushion her with soft swirling curls, no doubt inspired by The Arts & Crafts movement & similar to those in other popular works by Klimt. The man, in contrast, is comprised of strong Art Nouveau linear elements. This symbol of a man & a woman embracing is a commonly repeated motif in work by Klimt which begs the question—what is it about The Kiss which makes it so popular? Perhaps it is due to its almost pure portrayal of happiness. Usually in a Klimt the lovers represent the privilege of youth & elsewhere in the painting there are threats to that love, such as age, hatred, envy or death. The lovers in The Kiss are, however, not completely immune from peril. In the full sized painting (our notebook is a detail) the woman’s feet hang over an abyss, symbolizing the impending doom that awaits her.
Unsurprisingly there has been much debate about the identity of the model for The Kiss. Some have suggested that it might be a portrayal of him and his life-long platonic companion, Emilie Louise Flöge, as lovers. It is more likely that it was no single woman in particular.

Adele Bloch-Bauer I
On the back cover of our notebook is the first of two portraits of Adele, who was the wife of the wealthy industrialist Ferdinand Bloch-Bauer. Klimt painted this at the pinnacle of his Golden Phase. It was confiscated by the Nazis but in recent years has been returned to, and sold by, the family. Ever meticulous in his work, the work on Adele Bloch-Bauer’s portraits took Klimt 7 years to complete—Klimt was having an affair with Adele at the time so he hardly had an incentive to finish it swiftly.
