The painting "Roses Under The Trees" by Gustav Klimt is a masterpiece of the Art Nouveau style, also known as Modernism. This work was created in 1905 and is one of the most representative of the Austrian artist.

The composition of the painting is impressive, with a large number of details and elements that combine to create a harmonious and balanced image. The central figure is a woman sitting on a bench surrounded by trees and flowers. The woman is dressed in a white dress and her hair is adorned with flowers. All around her, roses of different colors and sizes can be seen, giving the painting a vibrant and full of life look.

The use of color in this work is exceptional. Klimt used a palette of bright, saturated colors, giving the painting a sense of vitality and energy. Gold and yellow tones are especially prominent, giving the work a luxurious and opulent look.

The story behind this painting is fascinating. It is believed to have been commissioned by Austrian businessman Ferdinand Bloch-Bauer as a portrait of his wife Adele. However, the painting was never handed over to the Bloch-Bauer family and was acquired by the Austrian government after World War II. In 2006, the painting was returned to the Bloch-Bauer family after a lengthy legal battle.

In addition to its beauty and its history, there are some lesser-known aspects of this painting that make it even more interesting. For example, Klimt is believed to have used gold leaf to create the gold details in the painting. It has also been suggested that the central figure in the painting is inspired by the Greek goddess Athena.
