With just a few weeks of summer left, this week's art inspired fashion post considers Austrian painter and print maker Max Kurzweil, who painted Woman in A Yellow Dress in 1899 and is one of the most significant artists in the Viennese Secessionist movement after Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele. A stunning portrait of his wife, the painting is a study in harmony, from the balance of her languid pale arms to the blue and green couch, complimenting the yellow dress and reflecting Kurzweil's Impressionism and plein-air painting influences.
