Gustav Klimt's painting "Two Girls With Oleander" is a masterpiece of modern art that has captivated art lovers since its creation in 1912. This work is a perfect example of Klimt's artistic style, characterized by the combination of decorative and symbolic elements with an impressionist painting technique.

The composition of the painting is fascinating, as Klimt uses a technique of layering shapes and colors to create a sense of depth and movement in the image. The two girls are depicted in close-up, with a great deal of detail in their dresses and in the oleander they hold in their hands. In the background, a landscape of mountains and trees can be seen, fading into the distance.

Color is another outstanding aspect of this work. Klimt uses a palette of bright, saturated colors, which contrast with the darker background tones. The girls' dresses are decorated with geometric and floral patterns, which blend with the texture of the oleander. All of this creates a sense of movement and vitality in the painting.

The story behind the painting is also very interesting. Klimt is believed to have painted this work as a commission for a wealthy family in Vienna. However, the painting was never delivered and remained in the artist's studio until his death in 1918. After his death, the work was acquired by a private collector and has passed through various hands ever since.

There are also little-known aspects of this work. For example, the two girls are believed to represent the daughters of the patron who commissioned the painting. Also, the oleander they hold in their hands is a symbol of innocence and purity, suggesting that the girls are young and virgin.
