The background chain-stitched whorls make a nice meta-motif to the Tree of Life spirals. The central, brilliant reds in this art silk pillow cover is sure to catch everyone's eye. Be bold!

Gustav Klimt is remembered as one of the greatest decorative painters of the twentieth century, and also produced one of the century's most significant bodies of erotic art. Initially successful as a conventional academic painter, his encounter with more modern trends in European art encouraged him to develop his own eclectic and often unique style.Klimt believed in the equality of fine and decorative art and was one of the most influential exponents of Art Nouveau, the movement that spread throughout Europe in the late 19th century.
