Gustav Klimt, Dancer, c.1916-18; private collection. Photo: ©Neue Galerie, New York.
Klimt reproductions are often very different from the originals, probably because there's so much fine detail and subtlety in the colors and patterns — very difficult to duplicate. In the reproduction below, the face has been altered, many tiny details have been changed or ignored, and — in an unusual twist — extra sections have been added on both sides to widen the picture. There seem to be smaller additions at the top and bottom as well. The photo of the work on display is from a 2016 exhibition called Klimt and the Women of Vienna's Golden Age at the Neue Galerie, New York.
