Gustav Klimt once said about himself:
“I can paint and draw.
There is no self-portrait of myself.
I am not interested in my own person – more in other people, females. […]
I paint day by day from morning to night – figurative paintings and landscapes, less often portraits.
Already when I should write a simple letter I get frightened like due to imminent seasickness.
Those who want to know more about me shall observingly regard my paintings, and try to realize who I am and what I want.“
