The Beethoven Frieze was created by Gustav Klimt for the Fourteenth Exhibition of the Viennese Secession in 1902, an event devoted to Ludwig van Beethoven. This exhibition united different forms of art, such as paintings, architecture, sculptures, and of course, music.
This painting is said to be based on Wagner’s interpretation of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. Meant for the exhibition only, the frieze was painted directly on the walls with light materials. After the exhibition the painting was preserved, although it did not go on display to the public again until 1986. It is composed of 3 different walls, on one of which is depicted the Knight in Shining Armour, who we show upon our pocket square. The gold used across the figure is a colour typical of Klimt’s work and often associated with him. The contrast of colours in the painting allow this pocket square to offer a variety of different folds.
