Some words about The Virgin painting:
The painting “The Virgin” refers to Klimt’s final period of work, when he began to abandon his own snobbish decorative style. This transformation is already visible on the 1913 canvas: Klimt chose a dark background for the painting and used a demanding color palette. When compared to his previous works, which were brimming with life and passion, “Virgins” exudes calmness rather than negotiation.
At first glance, the image tells us a complete story: a girl transforms into a woman. This process is depicted by the painter through the dream of a young girl surrounded by half-naked women, as if images from her dream. There is a hint of Klimt’s former heroine – the femme fatale from “Judith” or “Danae” – in them, but the women bent and turned away in oblivion look peaceful and touching. This is also supported by the deliberate contrast between the women’s softly painted faces and the coarse fabric of the bedspreads that conceal their bodies.
Female figures intertwined on a spinning, seemingly sinking into the abyss bed are “crowned” by the sprawled figure of a young girl, who appears happy and calm. Klimt’s use of spirals in painting the fabric of the bedspread – a symbol of infinity and immortality – is not for nothing. For him, a woman is a source of eternal life, which the girl in the picture is not yet aware of.
