the Persian princess in Klimt

the Persian Princess in Klimt

the Kiss, by Klimt, has special meaning for me.

When I lived in the Netherlands, in front of my bed, the big decoration painting was the print of the Kiss. When I was in Italy, I bought a small and delicate espresso cafe cup designed with the Kiss and brought to Singapore as a gift to the person who I love, he is also the person who encourages me to be an artist. 

When I was in Vienna, I went to Belvedere Museum to see this original painting, I was sitting in front of the painting and drew the Persian Princess on a postcard and sent to him.

 

Later when I came back home and did my first painting of Persian Princess, I painted this one, which marked the start of my artistic journey.
