Woman in a yellow dress | Max Kurzweil | 1899

Max Kurzweil founded, along with Klimt and other artists, a movement named The Vienna Secession, who rejected the conservatism of the Viennese Association of Artists, almost completely oriented to the history painting. The secessionists were influenced by the French impressionism and make it known across all Austria. According to the information of the articles, the secessionists take from the impressionists the use of bright colors, but personally, I don’t think this is one of the characteristics of the French movement. Whatever the reason, we have no doubt of the vibrant colors of the painting Woman in a yellow dress.

I it, we can see the artist’s wife posing relaxed on a couch. The yellow color of her dress is highlighted above any other characteristic of the work as it contrasts with the tones of the couch; and the background, undifferentiated and faded, intensify this effect. The sad and resigned expression of his wife in the work prophesies the dramatic end of the artist’s life who, after killing his lover, commits suicide in 1916.

  1. Absolutely wonderful painting.

  2. Slicing the packaging open will let you scoop out the last bit of product.
    The custom made should be able to draw the sketches
    in particulars. During the early 1920’s, the greatest influences that was
    exerted on the dress code was the women liberalization movement-
    i.

  3. If the Christmas party invitation specifies “holiday casual wear” as the dress code,
    don’t reach for your jeans. Women’s clothing retailer DOTS is
    going out of business and they are having a big sale.
    Its utilized by people who possibly will afford it as it’s usually expensive as the quality
    is high.

  4. The update has moved on to a number of different devices. Big names like the Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy S4 have been upgraded but so have other lesser known devices like the Galaxy Alpha.
