Artist Series - Quilled Lady with Fan, Klimt Greeting Card
Lady with Fan by Gustav Klimt was created in 1918 during the Art Nouveau movement. Klimt is recognized for his unique depictions of the female form with oil on canvas throughout his career and this was one of the last works he completed before his death. Klimt was considered a symbolist painter and is thought to have been heavily inspired by Japonism which can be noted in this work by the Japanese style kimono dress and fan. The Artist Series artfully transforms paint strokes into paper strips using the ancient art of quilling. Each card takes several hours to make and reimagines a famous work of art into a magnificent greeting card that can either be sent and shared with loved ones or kept and framed as the work of art it is.
