"Field of Poppies"
The polarizing effect of the red-green color opposition comes into effect in this poppy-filled landscape, one of Klimt's few to present a long perspective and deep horizon. In fact, instead of a dense background throwing colors or subjects to the picture surface, as in The Sunflower (1905), this work features a tightly packed foreground, with red intensity, to emphasize the panoramic horizon. Instead of finding ourselves confined within a close-up section of a landscape, we are treated to a lofty view, looking down on this luscious, fecund scene with its poppy explosion and fruit-laden trees. This, for Klimt, is his Garden of Eden, a world where he meets the divine through art. Again the work is reminiscent Impressionism of Van Gogh and that of Pointillist champion of Camille Pissarro.
