The Kiss, was painted between 1907 and 1908, and was displayed for the first time in 1908 in Vienna. It depicts a couple kissing and positioned in front of a plain gold background in order to draw your focus to them. Known for his patterns and his use of gold leaves, Klimt painted the man with a crown of vines on his head, while the woman wears flowers in her hair, her eyes closed. Some say that Klimt’s partner, Emilie Flöge, modelled for the painting with the artist himself. Despite being criticised for some of his work, which was judged as too intimate, The Kiss was well received and the Austrian government bought it before the artist even had a chance to finish it.
The bold colours used make this pocket square an extraordinarily eye-catching piece.
