Gustav Klimt, The Kiss, 1907-08, oil and gold leaf on canvas, 180 × 180 cm, Österreichische Galerie Belvedere, Vienna. Source

Klimt’s ‘Golden Period’ is undoubtedly his most famous, though it is specifically this richly patterned composition that comes to mind when the artist’s name is mentioned; at least, it certainly does for me. The Kiss depicts a man and woman in a tight embrace, surrounded by flat patterns in green and gold that were inspired by Byzantine mosaics. The identity of the pair has never been confirmed, though many believe Klimt painted himself with his partner Emilie Flöge for the intimate painting. What we do know is that The Kiss was executed at a time when Klimt was in poor favour with the Austrian public: his three-part ‘Vienna Ceiling’ series caused great scandal for its inclusion of nudity, but The Kiss, which was painted soon after, restored the artist back to his former glory. It was so well received, in fact, that the Österreichische Galerie Belvedere in Vienna purchased the canvas before it was even completed.

Another great carpet. I’m starting to think that large room carpeting is my favorite thing. This is in the conference center at the Cornhusker. It’s amazing. #carpet #patterns #floorlove #wishiwasondrugs

A peaceful rally over the presumed massacre of 43 missing students ended with violence and destruction in Mexico City, with protesters calling for the president to stand down.
Thousands marched along Mexico City’s main boulevard, chanting for Enrique Pena Nieto to resign and waving blackened flags of the country in anger over the case of the missing students. They echoed ‘you are not alone’ to parents of the missing who joined the rally at the Angel of Independence Monument.
