Inspired by Gustav Klimt
One of the most famous Austrian painters and artists of the Viennese Art Nouveau, and Bösendorfer, both greatly represent Austrian culture, dedicated craftsmanship, as well as artistic expression. The second model of the Klimt Series is dedicated to the portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer. In 1903, Ferdinand Bloch-Bauer, wealthy entrepreneur and connoisseur of great art, asks Gustav Klimt to portrait his wife. Klimt agrees and in the same year, travels to Italy. The gold-decorated church mosaics inspire him to translate this rich artistic expression to contemporary art. Over the following years, Klimt produces more than 100 sketches and studies for the dedicated painting. He experiments with various techniques until he succeeds in applying extensive amounts of silver and gold leaf to the oil painting.
With sophisticated reprographic techniques, the high resolution image of the original painting was reproduced on the inside of the Bösendorfer Grand Piano lid. The Klimt painting has also been refined by the skilled application of gold leaf and Bösendorfer Artisans lavishly gilded the music desk and the leg tops to reflect the golden expression of Art Nouveau. The Klimt model is limited to 25 instruments and we are honored to have #1 of 25. A sincere tribute to precious materials, lavish art, and beautiful music.
