Gustav Klimt- the painter that transformed the way I view art. I used to consider myself someone who didn’t “get” art- modern or classical. However, then I started thinking about pieces in their historical context. Paintings demonstrating technical abilities (think the Mona Lisa) were the only way of capturing the moment. Since we now have cameras, modern art emphasizes empathy and emotion. How can an artist use their medium to convey their message? While I am certainly no expert- I now have such a deeper appreciation for artists, modern and classical. Looking back at Klimt’s work now reminds me so much of Seattle with the boundless flowers and greenery. Is there a certain artist that’s changed the way you view something?
