Gustav Klimt's "Mother and Child - Klimt" tapestry shows a gorgeous work depicting his favorite red haired woman, this time with child. Their embrace is beautiful as captured by the expression on their faces. As usual, in his fantasy like approach to composition, he has streams of colorful pattern to represent both real elements as well as ethereal elements, as the aura around the woman is portrayed similarly to the child's shawl, representative of a protective theme in this work. Klimt (1862 - 1918), born in Vienna and became the quintessential Austrian symbolist painter , was obsessed in many ways with the red haired femme fatale, and here we see the more loving and nurturing side of this woman, as opposed to her more passionate and ecstatic side. This contemporary art tapestry "Mother and Child - Klimt" is backed with a lining and has a tunnel for easy hanging. Note: tapestry rod and tassels, where pictured, are purchased separately.
