      The painting on the obverse, “Nuda Veritas” or “Naked Truth,” was completed in 1899 and done using oil on canvas. Klimt based this painting on a quote by German philosopher Friedrich Schiller, almost a hundred years earlier. Basically, Schiller was saying that to try and please everyone is not good. Klimt was inspired by Schiller’s statement and used it to clearly state that modern art is the “Truth,” since the mirror the woman holds in her hand is facing outward and reflecting the modern paintings in the rooms at the exhibition in Vienna at that time.
