One of my most favorite paintings is "The Kiss" by Gustav Klimt. I remember studying this piece in my Art History course in college. Did you know it is one of the top 10 most famous paintings in the world ever according to mostinterestingfacts.com? Gustav, the Vienna master, painted this in 1907. The painting depicts a couple surrounded by a gold blanket and ornaments sharing a moment of shear passion: the perfect kiss. Every time I look at it, it gives me many feelings and memories of times I've felt these feelings before. Figurative art seems to do that for me. I guess it's something about seeing the expression or position of someone as well as the perspective. In this case the facial expression of the woman being kissed. Did you know you can order a print of "The Kiss" at Gallery Direct? The customers who have purchased it have given it 5 stars. Here is what one said about it: "I was so excited when I received my Klimt. I chose it to go over my fireplace in my living room and it looks perfect there! It really makes a statement and sets the tone for the entire space, which is exactly what I was looking to accomplish. The construction of the canvas on a wood frame is so light weight it made it simple too hang and it looks like a real piece of art. I couldn't be happier!" Besides selling many of the famous paintings in our Vintage collection we also have lots of figurative art by our current exclusive artists. Some of my favorites are: Deep Contemplation by M. Drake. Classic Beauty V by St. John. And Red Wing by Tatara. So be sure to check them out and see if figurative art does the same to you as it does for me. Also I am going to give you a sneak peek of our upcoming new artist who paints beautiful figurative art. Her name is Katherine Fraser and her art will be launched on March 26th! Here is a sample of some of her art..
