Gustav Klimt Canvas Print
, Waterserpents (Wasserschlangen II) From 1907
Water Serpents II, also referred to as Wasserschlangen II, is an oil painting made by Gustav Klimt in 1907. It is the follow-up painting to the earlier painting Water Serpents I. Like the first painting, Water Serpents II deals with the sensuality of women's bodies and same-sex relationships. The painting has a rich history. During World War II, it was stolen by the Nazis, and more recently, it has been the center of a controversy surrounding its record 2013 sale.
This Canvas Print is of Water Serpents II. It was sold for $183.8 million in 2013 to Dmitry Rybolovlev (Russian Oligarch), which makes it the 6th most expensive painting ever.
* Gustav Klimt Quotes:
"Truth is like fire; to tell the truth means to glow and burn."
"I have the gift of neither the spoken nor the written word, especially if I have to say something about myself or my work."
"All art is erotic."
