A reproduction by Marc Alexander. The Kiss After Klimt, archival canvas print in a tube, available in various sizes.

 

Archival Prints

Many of Marc’s artworks are available as fine art digital prints. Professionally photographed and printed on large format inkjet printers, these prints are limited edition numbered bottom left and signed bottom right. Printed on Van Gogh cotton canvas. The process employs fade resistant, archival inks, which boast a 100+ year fade-proof guarantee.

These prints are also available in varying sizes. Canvas prints can be provided stretched or rolled in a tube for easy transporting. The canvas print is treated with a high quality scratch resistant matt art-sealant. Directly behind the stretched canvas print is a fixed board which gives the frame rigidity, prevents warping and ensures the frame hangs flush against the wall. Large frames are cross braced to further prevent warping.

These prints are also available in varying sizes on archival paper.

 

The Kiss After Klimt

The original painting was painted by the Austrian Symbolist painter Gustav Klimt between 1907 and 1909, the highpoint of his “Golden Period”, when he painted a number of works in a similar gilded style. A perfect square, the canvas depicts a couple embracing, their bodies entwined in elaborate robes decorated in a style influenced by both linear constructs of the contemporary Art Nouveau style and the organic forms of the earlier Arts and Crafts movement.

The work is composed of oil paint with applied layers of gold leaf, an aspect that gives it its strikingly modern, yet evocative appearance. The painting is now in the Österreichische Galerie Belvedere museum in the Belvedere palace, Vienna, and is widely considered a masterpiece of the early modern period. It is a symbol of Vienna Jugendstil—Viennese Art Nouveau—and is considered Klimt’s most popular work.

It is a complex work that took me approximately 350 hours – underlying textured bits, lots of gold leaf and vibrant oil colours. The garden beneath the couple took me two weeks to complete.

I trained in the restoration of gold leaf Baroque picture frames during my time at the Pretoria Art Museum and this knowledge was invaluable for this project.
