Gustav is an Austrian artist. The second portrait of Adele, Gustav wrote in 1912. This picture is one of the ten most expensive art masterpieces in the world. What is the history of this model? Adele Bloch-Bower was the wife of Ferdinand Bloch-Bauer, who was one very rich industrialist of those times. Ferdinand loved art and sponsored various forms of art, including art. Therefore, Gustav received material resources from Ferdinand, by virtue of his creative personality. Adele was written by Gustav twice, and this is an isolated case in his creative life. From this we can conclude that Ferdinand very well sponsored it.
Description of the painting by the picture. The face, as well as the hands of Adele, are written exclusively in cold colors, which makes the picture realistic. They are the visual dominant in the awareness and perception of the picture with the human eye. An ornamental description of the remaining elements of the model distinguishes and distinguishes the hands and face from the overall picture. The composition can be divided into two parts. The right side of the canvas depicts Adele herself, while the left side carries a hint, only a small hint, on the interior. The left part of the picture is almost empty and allows a person to plunge into the world of imagination. There is another part of the picture, the bottom. She fills with the hem of Adele’s dress. Gustav preferred to depict a plane, rather than the perspective of depth on this model. All space (dress, walls, chair) is supplanted due to the golden background.
Therefore, this space looks exclusively as two-dimensional figures, located next to Adele. If you look at the picture in detail, you can see a woman with a graceful figure, which sits on the chair. The whole vertical of the canvas is occupied by this woman, leaving no more space for anything else. Light tones are emphasized by the contrast of Adele’s black hair and a large non-proportional red company. The woman’s gaze is fixed on the viewer, this increases the visual perception. And Adele holds her hands in front of her chest. The dress emphasizes the figure of a woman, it is fitting. Over the same dress shawl draped over, hands flowing down the picture. In this part of the picture is also dominated by the tones of gold.
A wide strip of triangles (double row) and a thin border of rectangles, gives the beauty and originality of the neckline of Adelie dress. The cape contains a spiral ornament, figures that resemble leaves and slightly noticeable folds. She is a little lighter tones of the dress. Armchair gold tones. It is emphasized exclusively through a spiral pattern. The overall range is given a color accent, with the help of a floor fragment of green shades. Also this fragment gives more stability to the model.
