  1. Women: Portraits By Gustav Klimt Boxed Notecards

    By Gustav Klimt Twenty full-color 5 x 7 in. blank notecards (5 each of 4 designs) with envelopes in a decorative box. At the turn of the twentieth century, Austrian society was in a state of turbulent change. A culture of prudishness and moral rectitude was collapsing and a new order was being born. The art world saw a clash between the bland, rigid establishment style and the emerging power, eroticism, and symbolism of works by the Vienna Secession—a group, co-founded by Gustav Klimt (1862–1918), that broke with the rule bound Vienna Academy and organized its own exhibitions. Thus in 1899 one of Klimt’s paintings was called “the most beautiful picture ever painted by an Austrian,” while a year later Klimt was excoriated for his new style. The paintings we now see as graceful, quietly sensual, and profoundly appreciative of their subjects were positively frightening to the Austrian sensibility in the early twentieth century.

  3. Rothko Boxed Notecards

    20 blank notecards (5 each of 4 designs) with envelopes in a decorative box Box size: 5.375 x 7.375 x 1.5 in. Card size: 5 x 7 in. ISBN 9780764928376 Mark Rothko was one of a small group of great artists who established New York City as central to the art world in the 1950s. While his work was an enormous critical success, critics had trouble writing about it: in that formalist era, a painting had to be considered strictly as itself; to write criticism that mentioned a work’s emotional or spiritual effect on the writer was really not acceptable. Stunningly full of silent communication, these richly hued paintings are Rothko’s thoughts made manifest and invite quiet contemplation.

  4. Paul Heussenstamm: Tantra Boxed Notecards

    Tantra is an ancient devotional practice that leads its practitioners from unawareness of self to a high state of consciousness. Tantra, a Sanskrit word that translates to “expansion and liberation,” involves ritual union of the masculine and the feminine. Artist Paul Heussenstamm has long practiced tantric spirituality, known to him as “one of the ultimate paths of enlightenment.” Through study of Buddhism, Hinduism, and Christianity, Heussenstamm has created artworks that incorporate aspects of many traditions, and has found that “no matter what you think or know, the world is far more beautiful than you can ever imagine.” So that others may discover their spiritual path through art, Heussenstamm has created these four paintings inspired by ancient Buddhist thangkas. Contains five each of the following notecards: Chocolate Tantra Heruku Vajrasattva Tantra Tantra Bliss
