Image of a woman with pale, almost blue, skin. She has dark hair that has been pinned up. There are tiles behind her that are mostly tan but some contain blues and reds. The tiles "flow" into smaller sections giving it a gradated appearance.
Gustav Klimt was an Austrian Symbolist painter and one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Art Nouveau (Vienna Secession) movement. His major works include paintings, murals, sketches, and other art objects, many of which are on display in the Vienna Secession gallery. Klimt's primary subject was the female body and utilized a collage-style painting technique.
