Farm Garden with Sunflowers, 1913 is characterized by cheerfulness. Klimt makes radical use of the diagonal to connect the foreground and background.
Similar to Van Gogh’s paintings, which was repeatedly studied by Klimt, the foreground is given prominence and seen as particularly meaningful, its materiality emphasized and depicted precisely in luminous colors. The flowers are integrated in a well-considered manner, in the ingenious relationship of their refined coloration. In order to draw attention to – or amplify – their impact, a green meadow is counterpoised.
Klimt did not like traveling; it is a well known fact that he only ever left Austria with great reluctance – he would always be overcome by homesickness at the border and would immediately turned around, if he had had his way. His friends, and those who accompanied him on his travels, reported that, when on his way home, he became increasingly happy the closer he came to the border, and that he sang to himself “The wind is blowing briskly toward my homeland.”
The colors selected for the cross stitch kit have been expertly matched to the original painting. The finished size is 30cm x 30cm
