Today Google’s homepage is “The Kiss,” commemorating the 150th birthday of Austrian painter Gustav Klimt. My sister actually gave me a print of this painting for my birthday last year, but I hung it horizontally on accident and all my friends made fun of me. But I ended up liking it better that way, because I’d rather the couple be cuddling and laying down than on a hillside that ends after her feet for no reason. I don’t think Klimt would have minded that I hung it the wrong way. But they do look better standing on Google’s page.
Check out some Klimt history in the Christian Science Monitor’s article on this 150th celebration.
