The Hope II, 1908

The Hope II, 1908

Gustav Klimt

"Hope II" was Klimt's second exploration of the pregnancy theme, and was in many ways less overtly provocative than "Hope I." The woman's abdomen was no longer bared, and the ghoulish spectess that featured prominently in the earlier painting is here discretely hidden in the decorative folds of her gown.

The second painting entitled "Hope II" was first shown to the public in 1909 in the Klimt room of the second Kunstschau. The first painting which had been withdrawn from the retrospective Secessionist's exhibition for obscenity six years earlier was also on show there. At the time, Klimt had the following to say about the painting. "Everything is ugly, she is and what she sees, yet inside her grows beauty, hope. And her eyes express that." The title refers to the German expression „in guter hoffnung” (in good hope), which refers to a woman being pregnant. In both paintings death plays a role - literally being in the background - which is hardly surprising if you take Klimt's painful recent experience into account. The second son he had with his model Marie Zimmerman died at just four months old.

The painting will be delivered unstreched, rolled in protective & presentable case.
