Lladro The Kiss (150th Anniversary Edition) 13" x 12.25"
Celebrating the 150th anniversary of the birth of the famous Austrian painter Gustav Klimt (1862-1918), Lladr is launching a new piece inspired by the artists work. The piece chosen for this celebration is inspired by The Kiss, one of Klimts most celebrated paintings. The challenge for Lladr artists was how to lend maximum expression to the ornamentation of the piece. To this end, they had to carefully study the work of the genius from Vienna, his colors, textures, motifs The end result is a sculpture faithful to the spirit of one of his most widely known works.
Golden luster and the application of enamels were critical in achieving this aim. Different kinds of golden luster were used in this piece on the mans cloak and the womans dress. The Lladr artists also played with combinations of matte and glazed finishes to round off a decoration resonating with the work of the famous Viennese painter. Includes a commemorative decal on the base for those pieces produced in 2012.
