This work is a tribute to sensuality, strength, beauty and love. It is an allegory of mystical union of spiritual and erotic love and the merging of the individual with the eternal cosmos. The painting is thought to be an image of Klimt and his lover Emilie.
Klimt's muses - Emilie, Adele and other golden women. Even after 100 years, the golden women in Klimt's painting are still gleaming. The have become synonymous with his art. Those mysterious female figures all had a special connection to the master of Art Nouveau.
