Golden touch

Gold has fascinated us through the ages, it is a symbol of power, wealth and beauty. Artists have used it for centuries. From Gustav Klimt to the ancient Japanese tradition of gold leaf painting, gold has always had a very strong visual impact in an artwork. Whether it is the colour or the actual gold material used, the artist must take great care of how he uses it. Indeed too much gold might spoil the artwork and on the contrary too little of it would be playing it safe.

Artsper has chosen for you a selection of artwork for you twelve artworks worth their weight in gold !
