Beech Forest 1 - Description

Beech Forest was painted in 1902 by Austrian Symbolist Gustav Klimt. This landscape piece takes the viewer into the heart of a greatedge of a barren forest whose dead leaves lie scattered on the ground beneath. In the background looms great divide of the infinite horizon, a white line that runs from the left border to the right border. There appears to be no sign of humans or human interaction giving the forest a surreal appearance and an unearthly feel. The point of this painting is to act as a tranquil and mystical realm where the trees are the dominant life force. The trees grow freely and easily from the ground apart from the strife and struggle endured by humans. This is meant to be a realm free of responsibility or turmoil where freedom is the only law. The height of the horizon line gives Beech Forest a top heavy feeling in terms of composition in contrast to the balance that the mass of trees presents. Gustav Klimt paints an accurate portrayal of distance by the amount of space prevalent between trees in the foreground as opposed to the background. Observe the manner in which their tops blend together to form a mass of color as solid as the ground even while bereft of their leaves. Beech Forest also hints at the symbol of mortality that all beings in nature must someday face.
