The first event of the new 2024 season of Great Art at the Cinema of Nexo Digital: KLIMT’S KISS, the docufilm directed by Ali Ray which investigates the history, sensuality, dazzling materials and mysteries of one of the most evocative, known and reproduced paintings of the world. Painted around 1908, five years after Klimt’s visit to Ravenna and his fascination with the Byzantine mosaics, the work is one of the artist’s undisputed masterpieces. Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) was a titan of the Secession, capable of creating new decadent worlds that fused sensuality and ancient mythology with the most radical modernity. Many of his paintings feature the beauty and mystery of the female body and in particular his “golden period” is characterized by a unique working method that allowed him to apply a very thin natural gold leaf to the canvas. The film, enriched by the music of Asa Bennett, delves into the details of the gold of the painting, which give the compositions warm light and depth, decorative designs, symbolism and eroticism of Klimt.
