Painted between 1916 and 1918, The Dancer is one of Gustav Klimt’s last paintings, and it stands out for it’s sensual and colorful style. On this painting, a model is standing in the middle, wearing a colored mantle or kimono. She holds a bouquet of flowers and her head is turning to the left. The colors and style of the vestments, along with the bright green background and the figures on the back show Klimt's fascination with the oriental culture.
The woman on the painting remains anonymous until nowadays, but the details and accuracy to which her fashion choices and face were painted suggest that this painting was originated from a failed commission.
The pale model stands in the middle of the long canvas. Her blanched skin contrasts and emerges from the mass of colors that are present on her clothes, on the background, flowers, and ground. From the vests, her legs, arms, and chest appear. She smiles with a very harmonious aspect. Her rosy cheeks are one of Klimt’s strong features, along with the expressive jaw and hairlines. Little swirls of dark hair frame her face, and the rest of the mass of hair is locked behind her head.
The colorful mantle comes down from her shoulders in rose tones, being permeated with warmer tones of yellow and green as it reaches her arms. The mantle is covered in patterns. Swirls, squares, and circles color the robe around her body. She wears a pair of beige heels adorned with a nice silky ribbon. The ground is covered in large squares of colors, on top of which is settled a round table with a vase of round pink flowers on it.
The background has two interesting elements. Over the blazing green are painted some figures that are wearing a simple version of the model’s vestment. This would suggest an oriental environment or that the figures would be part of a pattern of something hanging on the background. The other elements are leafy hedges of the same pink flowers that are on top of the table. The model holds on her hands a different bouquet of yellow daffodils, very different from the flowers on the table and the background.
