The Tree of Life, Expectation and Fulfillment(1905-1911)
Klimt was commissioned by Belgian financier Adolphe Stoclet and his wife to create a frieze for the dining hall of their Brussels palace in 1905. The palace was built by Josef Hoffman and exists as a perfect example of the Wiener Werkstatte’s concept of Gesamtkunstwerk (total work of art). Klimt’s marvelous mosaic pieces match the aesthetic of Hoffman’s grand design. The panels were hung along three walls in the palace, and nine of his study sketches are on display at the Museum of Applied Arts/Contemporary Art (MAK) in Vienna.
