"Klimt's Twinz" 2014 Original Artwork

Klimt's Twinz"” is an original, signed acrylic painting on a gallery-wrapped canvas by Citrus County Florida artist Michael Arnold.

Klimts Twinz was pained in a modern art style in celebration of the great Gustav Klimt.


This original acrylic painting is on a quality gallery wrapped canvas. All sides are painted with no staples showing. The acrylic painting is ready to be hung and can be displayed with or without a frame. 


It's been a while since I uploaded any new paintings , but i finally got six of them up on my website and now its time to share them on Facebook. This painting was a family favorite and we had a bit of a bidding war on where it was going to end up, but it is up in Gainesville right now. 

I named the painting Klimt's Twinz as a homage to Gustav Klimt. Gustav Klimt was an Austrian Symbolist painter and one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Art Nouveau movement. His major works include paintings, murals, sketches, and other art objects, many of which are on display in the Vienna Secession gallery. Gustav Klimt's primary subject was the female body, and his works are marked by a frank eroticism--nowhere is this more apparent than in his numerous drawings in pencil. Gustav Klimt was a controversial figure in his time. His work was constantly criticized for being too sensual and erotic, and his symbolism too deviant. Today, they stand out as the more important paintings ever to come out of Vienna. His artwork below shows how he loved to mix the female body with lots of gold inlay.
