Happy birthday to Gustav Klimt. Today we celebrate his special day with a painting he began in 1917, but was left unfinished by his sudden death in 1918. This masterful portraitist had an incredible impact on painting with his intimate depictions of women and remarkable detailing. Has anything unfinished ever looked so good?
Now on view: “Frauenbildnis (Portrait of a Woman),” 1917–18, by Gustav Klimt (On loan from The Lewis Collection)
I like when we made eye contact at the art book fair
I like how we always ended up in the same room
I like how we danced together a week later
I like how he tapped me on the shoulder and said, “were you at the art book fair?”
I like how he asked me to share a cigarette
I like that he runs a gallery and studied art history at Brown
I like that that he lives 5 blocks away from me
