"The Tree of Life, Stoclet Frieze"

Gustav Klimt - 195 x 102 cm - 1909 - (Museum of Applied Arts (Vienna, Austria))

In 1909, founded upon the Art Nouveau (Modern) style of painting, “Tree of Life” is one of Klimt’s finest symbolic art works. Preserved in the Museum of Applied Arts, Vienna, this painting was part of a series commissioned at the Palais Stoclet of Brussels. Created later in life, this was a series of three mosaics that were painted across the dining room of Palais. “Tree of Life” is used by many theologies to draw a connection between the heaven, earth and underground. Klimt paints his own version of it in a very highly productive phase of his life. As a symbolic painting, every element in this painting is meant to symbolize something. The branches twirl and swirl into the sky while the tree is rooted in earth, thus representing the aforementioned connection. The Blackbird symbolizes mortality. The presence of women on two sides is meant to symbolize “Mother Nature”. The richness of golden leaves and pearls expresses all the magic and wonder in this world. The “New Residence Hall”, also called the “Tree House”, situated inside the Massachusetts College of Art and Design, was influenced by this masterpiece.
