The Künstler-Compagnie was able to realize the ceiling painting Spring according to its own designs. On the right-hand side, Gustav Klimt painted the Diana with bow and arrow shooting a heron; above, putti carry a garland of flowers. Because the Hermesvilla sustained severe damage during World War II, virtually no original substance remains of the paintings executed by the Künstler-Compagnie.
