What Artist Should Paint You? Gustav Klimt, of course!

What Artist Should Paint Your Portrait?

Who Should Paint You:Gustav Klimt

Sensual and gorgeous, you would inspire an enchanting portrait… with just enough classic appeal to be hung in any museum!

Thanks to Raincoaster via Az.

Certainly got THAT right. I love Klimt. Since he is dead, however, I will have to do it myself

The following are from a series I started called “Alter Egos”… myself as the subject in famous artworks.

The Klimt ones are some of my favorites.
