22 Jan GUSTAV KLIMT IN A FRESCO FOR HOME DECOR
KLIMT FROM CATALOGUE
Subjects inspired by Gustav Klimt have been a feature of our catalogue for years.
Nearly one hundred years later Klimt’s works continue to exude a great charm that never seems to fade with the passing of time.
Always in search of new home furnishing ideas to offer our customers, we certainly could not ignore this artist with a refined style, whose attention to decorative detail continues to fascinate and capture the imagination of contemporary viewers.
A Klimt painting never ceases to fascinate, its modernity lies in the artist’s vision of the world imbued with symbolism.
By examining his works in detail, you can see how Klimt dealt with universal themes such as life, death, love and dreams, which are still very relevant a century later.
Like all great art, Klimt’s paintings can also be considered Sub specie aeternitatis.
MARIANI AFFRESCHI LIFESTYLE
Klimt was an interior decorator and designer by profession.
His artistic background perfectly reflects the activity of Mariani Affreschi. In fact, for years we have offered our experience to complement interior architecture, with studies and advice on interior design. We pay attention to finishes, decorations, amalgamating everything tastefully to create harmonious and welcoming interiors.
DISTINGUISH YOURSELF WITH A KLIMT. A PRECIOUS WALL DECORATION
Klimt clearly expresses the importance of architecture and decorative art. The decorations in his works enter with force into the painting’s composition and – although with elegance – alternate between a decorative exuberance of abstract motifs and a ruthless realism of the natural aspect of human figures.
He uses applied art techniques, however, the ornament is no longer marginal, but is emphasised and becomes the fulcrum of his work.
Captivated by the redundancy and ornamental sumptuousness of his swirls, we drew inspiration from his decorative designs and from the meticulous attention to details to enrich our catalogue with magnificent, unique and characteristic home décor items.
Giving importance to the ornamental details, we also succumbed to the use of one of the most precious and noble materials of all: gold.
The oldest metal used by man, whose beauty, durability and relative rarity have made it one of the most precious materials in existence.
Our catalogue includes numerous references to his Golden Period: paintings characterised by the same richness that Klimt extracts from the precious metal of Byzantine and Ravenna mosaics and from the multitude of colours deriving from Austrian rococo.
APPLICATION OF GOLD LEAF TO CREATE A PRECIOUS WALL
The gilding of our paintings, inspired by the artist, occurs by the meticulous application of Gold Leaf to the painting with a fine-bristled brush.
A fresco or Giclée can be characterised by modernity, refinement and luxury encompassed in wavy and elegant embroidered lines, combined with refined details such as Gilding. The enjoyment will surely come from having a total and complete work of art, a precious scene that will brighten up any room like a wall jewel that creates a dreamlike and mysterious environment.
