In the immediate vicinity of by Gustav Klimt and family Flöge in the summers of 1900 am Attersee was the farm of Anton Mayr, to a pretty cottage garden with sunflowers belonged until 1907 inhabited Bräuhofs in Litzlberg. For an essay on clothes models from the fashion house of the Sisters Flöge which he photographed for the magazine German art and decoration, was Klimt in the summer of 1906 Emilie Flöge in this garden posing in reform dresses. In fact verbildlichte Klimt cottage garden in Litzlberg and a single sunflower. "There are going new things in nature," the art critic Ludwig Hevesi, remarked "once a Klimt in occurs." In fact begins "his", Klimt, natural from now on a strange life of its own to develop. Herein lies a major difference to the sunflower paintings of Vincent van Gogh, who describes the reactions of the flowers on very specific conditions that may well suit his own mental perception. Klimt other hand, the natural life of its own. They developed a completely new, hierarchical classification system, shielding themselves from all outside influences. Not without reason one thinks of human characteristics and remembers a saying Peter Altenberg for his landscape paintings: "They have been raised to their own romantic peak points." Ludwig Hevesi noted in this context that Klimt's Sunflower "like a fairy love" appearing "whose greenish gray garment passionate shudder down flows". With the knowledge of the mentioned fashion shoots of sunflower can on a metaphorical level, the figure certainly be associated with Emilie Flöge. The self-contained representation of the beautiful but lonely flower then correspond to the never-defined life relationship between her and Klimt. Yet she's lonely, locked, and is admired by all. A year later, the two lovers (Kiss) Klimt's desire is fulfilled in the formally very similar monumental icon - even if only in an imaginary world of images. [Alfred Weidinger, 3/2012]
