Born in 1862, Austrian painter Gustav Klimt became known for the highly decorative style and erotic nature of his works. “I have never painted a self-portrait. I am less interested in myself as a subject for painting than I am in other people, above all women.” These earrings are inspired by a detail in the painting “The Kiss” done in 1908. Solid brass, electro-plated with gold finish, glass beads, ear wires are gold plated. Hangs approx. 1"
