The Tree of Life, 1905, Gustav Klimt, oil on canvas
I chose this painting because i like the pattern that is created. His use of shapes and colors creates a romantic feel throughout this and many of his paintings. This painting represents the three worlds, The underworld through the trees deep roots, Earth through the embracing couple, and the heavens with the tree branches continuing off the page into the sky. Gustav also makes a point of representing death with the one and only thing on the tree, a black bird.
