Went to see the Gustov Klimt exhibit at San Francisco’s Legion of Honor…. Loved this painting of Maria Munk, a painting Klimt had felt was unfinished…. Indeed, the top of the painting is far more rendered with texture and paint than the bottom, much of which seems to be simply charcoal on paper… But what Klimt saw as imperfect, as incomplete, is, perhaps inadvertently, perfectly complete – an Austrian example of Japanese wabi sabi…. It’s perceived flaw, its unfinished effort, thematically scores its sad beauty, especially when one considers that the model, Maria Munk, had taken her life at age twenty-four…. Her own unfinished, incomplete life is tragically displayed by Klimt’s “unfinished” effort.
