The Tree of Life by Gustav Klimt

The Tree of Life is a painting by the Austrian symbolist painter Gustav Klimt. It is based on the Art Nouveau (Modern) style in a symbolic painting genre. 

The painting was completed in 1909. It is a study of a series of three mosaics created by Klimt for a 1905–1911 commissioned work at the Palais Stoclet in Brussels, Belgium. For this reason, you can often find another title attached to Tree of Life, such as Stoclet Frieze. The mosaics depict swirling Trees of Life, a standing female figure, and an embracing couple.

The Tree of Life is a central and fundamental symbol in many theologies, philosophies, and mythologies from around the world. However, this concept is illustrated originally and boldly in this painting by Gustav Klimt. The branches and long vines twist and twirl, creating an expression of life's complexity.

The iconic Klimt painting inspired the external facade of the "Tree House" — a colorful 21-story student residence hall at Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston, Massachusetts.
