Brown vegan leather messenger bag with Tree of Life by Gustav Klimt.
Austrian Symbolist painter Gustav Klimt (1862 – 1918) one of the most known worldAustrian artist, living mainly in Vienna.
He overcame childhood poverty to significantly influence the Viennese Secession and Art Nouveau movement. Klimt’s elaborate, explicitly sensual works expressed themes of regeneration, love and death, and incorporated Egyptian, Classical Greek, Byzantine and Medieval styles. Klimt also utilized symbols representing art’s liberation from traditional culture. Laying the groundwork for Art Deco and Modernism, Klimt’s creative influence can still be seen in today’s art, decorations and jewelry.
