Golden Apple Tree ~ Gustav Klimt ~ Silver Coin with Amber in Frame

Gustav Klimt  gained fame thanks to  a  very decorative style; golden background, elaborate ornaments and contrasted colors, the hallmark of his individual artistic approach, were seen as the rebellion against the traditional art. Nonetheless, the academic circles of that time criticized his works as controversy. Today, the legacy of Gustav Klimt is still inspiring consecutive generations of artists.
 
COIN iS DECORATED WITH POLISH AMBER – THE GOLD OF THE BALTIC SEA
 
Gustav Klimt's painting "The Golden Apple Tree" (1903), which served as the prototype for the Tree of Life - the frieze in the Stockle palace in Brussels - was destroyed by fire in 1945.
The composition of the picture was constructed as follows: on the left side of the canvas there was a knotty trunk, the branches were hidden in a lush crown with numerous yellow apples, to which the artist assigned most of the space.
The light gray bark with black spots, which in some places looked like an eye, was depicted quite realistically. In the background was another apple tree, written in a similar manner. True, the master chose a blue-green color for her crown, and red for the fruits. The bluish foliage of the tree was in harmony with the image of grass under the "golden apple".
