The Klimt pillows, and especially the Tree of Life, are some of our most stunning examples of contemporary art. Though not held to be an important artist in terms of his influence on others, Gustav Klimt nonetheless remains probably the most popular and well-known artist in the Art Nouveau movement. Klimt is best known for his beautiful, flowing paintings of women, and his extensive use of gold leaf, evoking a blatant sensuality and eroticism that was shocking to his late Victorian and early Edwardian audience.
The Tree of Life branching up to the blue sky with its roots in the earth is using elements of Klimt but is also inspired by the oriental tree of life design with birds. This piece offers a dramatic accent to any room. The entire cotton base of the pillow is overlaid with soft wool, stitch by stitch, creating an extraordinary show piece for your decor. This is world-class workmanship created to enhance your world with dynamic color and motif. Contemporary Throw Pillows with world class embroidery are created through fair trade practices to enhance our world with dynamic color and design.
