GUSTAV KLIMT IN THE COUNTRYSIDE

THE WONDER OF TREES & ROSES

Never say there is nothing beautiful in the world.  There is always something to wonder in the shape of a tree, the trembling of a leaf.

Albert Schweitzer, Dictionary of Proverbs

Usually Viennese iconic artist Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) is associated with his colorful and dynamic portraits. However, Klimt’s landscapes such as Rosebushes Under the Tree are increasingly appreciated today. French-German Nobel prize winner Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965) combined his medical background, religious training, and humanitarian outreach in Africa to further worldwide peace.
