This close-up of a flower garden with its tight perspective and emphasis on the painted surface is an outpouring of Klimt's love of patterning and design. The riot of colors recalls backgrounds from some of his monumental frieze work thrown down here in exaggerated profusion.
The pyramidal structure gives form and shape to the intensity of patterning, which, like other of Klimt's landscape works, plays on the polarizing effects of a predominant oppositional red-green palette.
However, Klimt places the odd note of blue at the heart of this composition to act as a focal point within the color confusion.
