Gustav Klimt's Birthday Month! July 01 2017
Born July 14th 1862, to a performer-at-heart mother and gold engraving father, it is almost no wonder why Klimt's body of work bursts with life and ooze decadence. Trained professionally from a very early age, Klimt, age 17 and a team of other artists were already receiving commissions for painting and murals at this young age. He became one of the most famous Austrians in the world and has inspired countless artists since and before his death in 1918. Here's to you Mr. Klimt, may the world's people always feel as cozy as you must have been in your robes!
