During the summer of 1904 and 1905, Gustav Klimt produced a lot of landscapes over his stay in Litzlberg. When we look at Roses Under the Trees, we can see the vivid, intense style also used in other paintings from this period such as The Pear Tree and Sunflower. It’s an intensely decorative and symbolic style.
During this period, Klimt’s style of landscapes started to develop into a more and more decorative aspect, and slowly he incorporated the Post-Impressionist style, stepping away from the atmosphere and environment variations of colors previously seen by the Impressionists and present in few of his earlier landscapes. Although the artist would still be painting in-loco, the result of his observations was turning a lot more decorative.
Roses Under the Trees is an intense painting. The treetops are a mist of little yellow dabs of paint and green leaves. The style of the brushstrokes, as we can observe in The Pear Tree, is intense and vigorous, a very remarkable characteristic of the Post-Impressionist style as well. The brushstrokes not only define the general aspect of the painting but also define the individual format of the leaves, petals, and flowers. The treetops are big voluminous masses of these dots. The tree in the foreground is vibrant with light yellow petals standing out from the green mass that is the background. As the trees are settled further into the background, the tops are painted in even darker shades of green and blue. The yellow flowery dots get smaller, achieving a good sense of perspective even in such an odd composition.
Below the trees, there are white rose bushes. The green mass of leaves of the bushes is portrayed in a less saturated and cooler tone of green. White round roses crown these bushes, painted in a much smoother brushstroke technique than the leaves from the three. Their format is more detailed and delicate. Most of the roses are created in an off-white shade, but some of them show darker tones of pink and tangerine oranges.
The ground grass is painted in bright apple green with tiny yellow flowers and pointy leaves. Few tree trunks are painted over the ground, almost fading in the middle of the mass of grass and leaves. The trunks are beautifully drawn in tones of green and brown but show lighter details in shades of cream and yellow.
