what is "women in gold"?

woman in gold is a film about the restitution of the Klimt painting portrait of adele bloch-bauer, which had been stolen by Nazis and was being held by the Austrian government

it is really good and aggressively and ANGRILY Jewish (despite not having any Jews cast for reasons that honestly boggle me)

I wrote a thing about it here

and leverage has an episode about it! i’m so happy

Christian Dior with Gustav Klimt as a Muse.

We can notice Klimt’s fascination with textiles in his paintings: his subject are often draped in ample, complex and refined fabric that takes up the most important part of the canvas. The subjects are suspended in space as the fabric envelopes them and Galliano replicates this in his voluminous silhouettes.

I love your new picture! Did you have that taken professionally? You look really pretty

Thank you! My friend was doing a photography project and she’s not a professional but she might as well be she’s so great! It’s a project in collaboration with another friend who did my make up, they chose paintings and recreated them on people’s faces and then photographed it. I’m Gustav Klimts Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I

Don’t be confused. This is the ‘Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I’/'Woman In Gold’ by Gustav Klimt, on view at The Neue Galerie New York (@neuegalerieny). We’re paired up in the #NYC #MuseumInstaSwap challenge so tomorrow we’re sharing images from them relating to the African Diaspora and they’re posting images from us. The Neue Galerie focuses on early twentieth-century #German and #Austrian art and design and we’re so excited to show you the connections we made. Stay tuned. #womaningold #gustavklimt #neuegalerie
