This is like a photograph instead of a painting. Remarkable.

I often think Klimt's paintings look like collages of photos and paintings. It's all paint, of course, it's just that he combines realism with fantasy and abstract.

Wow, I didn't know this painting... it is gorgeous... the realism is awesome ! The black dress is just perfect with the white skin.
