Gustav Klimt Hope I
1903 Fine Art Painting
The unusual subject and its formal rendition created critical perplexity, so much so that, in order for Klimt to exhibit this work, he had to give it a religious interpretation. The pregnancy theme had already been present in one of the artist’s figures in Medicine and the Beethoven Frieze. In 1907-08 Klimt will paint a second version, Hope II, this time with the pregnant woman wearing a highly stylised and geometric dress.
