The compositional addition to the depiction of Expectation is Fulfillment, also called “Lovers”, on the opposite side: a man in a red kimono standing with his legs apart, whose back is facing towards us, and a woman in a green dress covered with flowers in an intimate embrace. One can assume that the lovers are Gustav Klimt and Emilie Flöge. Klimt wrote Flöge in 1914 after his first inspection of the finished mosaic in Brussels that he was “most intensely” reminded of the troubles, pleasures, and worries during the creation of the work drawings in the Villa Oleander in Kammerl at Lake Atter.
