Klimt paints this work between 1917 and 1918, his last year of life. The Viennese artist is considered the greatest exponent of the Art Nouveau, a style characterized by decorative elegance, linearism and which draw inspiration in nature and plant forms. The lady with a fan he portrays is a sophisticated and sensual woman. Her complexion is bright, and her cheeks are pinkish. The lines are soft and balanced. The fan in the woman's hands is delicately lost among the colours and the numerous lines. The woman's face, enriched by a proud look, reveals her inner strength. The colours are skilfully matched, and they reveal, through the use of gold, the Byzantine influence that Klimt has the opportunity to meet during his trip to Italy. The use of very rich motifs as background, especially floral and animal ones, the alternation of small and large subjects, the elimination of every corporeal volume, recall with great insistence Japanese art. Many of Klimt's works are about women. The close relationship between the subjects, the clothes and their decorations unequivocally recall the Japanese ukiyo-e. Looking at this woman, one has the impression that her body dissolves in the ornamental richness of her dress and that she is almost devoured by that, then she seems to sway, disappear and reveal herself again in the sea of elements that surround her. Klimt's paintings are characterized by an intense use of symbolism, from which derives an extremely refined and psychoanalytic painting. Klimt's art makes a lot of noise in the society of his time. The traditionalism of Vienna does not appreciate the perverse and sometimes sadistic representation that the painter gives to women. The scandal is mainly about the irreverent way in which Klimt proposes nude, accompanied by the overly explicit manner in which sensuality and eroticism can be seen in his works.
