MadameRuiz Profile picture The half-length portrait of Johanna Staude is one of the last female portraits in the oeuvre of Wiener Secession* artist Gustav Klimt. Klimt made this portrait in 1917-18.
* Wiener Secession is comparable to French Art Nouveau and German Jugendstil.

The woman, Johanna Staude was born in Vienna in 1883 as Johanna Widlicka. So she must have been here for about 34 years. During the First World War she was married to Franz Staude. Who she was or what she did as a profession is not completely clear, but it seems to be a very fashionable woman, given the short haircut and the blouse, made of a Wiener Werkstätte fabric. The fabric with blue leaves was designed by the arts and crafts student and Wiener Werkstätte employee Martha Alber. The colors contrast enormously with the red-orange background that Johanna is placed in front of. What is also immediately noticeable is the black boa of feathers around her neck. This boa immediately draws attention to her face, which is framed by a large light-dark contrast, partly due to her dark hair.

According to her own statement, Johanna Staude posed not only for Gustav Klimt. The Viennese also posed for another very well-known artist: Egon Schiele.

The portrait radiates tranquility through a very calm composition, especially for Gustav Klimt. Even though all sorts of things happen in the woman's clothing, the composition is a central composition, stretching from top to bottom. And that over a fairly straight line. Her face is quite static and only with a very small, almost invisible nod above her body. And we are used to this differently from Gustav Klimt. For example, in 'The Kiss' you see that the bodies bend in completely strange directions. Sometimes cracking is a better choice of words.

The painting is wonderfully polychrome with colors such as red, orange, blue and purple, black and beige.

The painting has been digitally 'polished' into a powerful, contemporary image. The original of this work can be found digitally under https://sammlung.belvedere.at/objects/4302/johanna-staude , inventory number 5551 and can be viewed in Museum Belvedere in Vienna.

I am MadameRuiz, and am an artist by profession. I hope to delight you with my work. Here in my profile, or on your wall :) Both are fun!

Will you let me know what you think of my work? I would love to get in touch with you. Also when you have one of my works in your home I am very curious about the end result in your interior.

I love everything that has to do with art, culture and creativity. Experiencing, creating, teaching and communicating. Through language, image, non-verbal and through the musical voice.

I became known for my commissioned ink portraits. My work was first shown to a large audience in the program VTWonen Weer verliefd op je huis (February 2021). I make many ink portraits of and for individuals; from pregnancy portraits, wedding portraits, child portraits, love portraits and family portraits to portraits of pets such as dogs, cats, horses and birds. These ink portraits are all handmade by the way, drawn and painted with east indian ink on watercolor paper.

In my shop at work on the wall you can order my Digital Art. Because I normally work almost exclusively on commission, my autonomous art via Digital Art is really a wonderful experimental outlet. This also means that I keep experimenting with painting techniques and collage techniques using Photoshop. Although I love to experiment, quality comes first
