"Adele Bloch-Bauer I" (1907, Wien). DETAIL: Paintings inside paintings. Studded with precious metals. Opulent patchwork of ornaments, where Mycenaean gold mingles with Byzantium. Creating the overall impression of a religious idol. This is Klimt’s expression of the decadent, morbid passion for jewelry. However, the triumph of this goddess is also her prison, captured in her precious tapestries, sealed alive inside a wall of gems.
