Gustav Klimt, "Emilie Flöge"
Gustav Klimt, Emilie Flöge, 1902; Wien Museum, Vienna.
This is one of Klimt's most famous paintings, and is the star of the Klimt collection at the Wien Museum in Vienna. It's very tall, with distinctive coloring and detail. The oddly cropped, modern reproduction below, seen online in various locations, is overly blue throughout, and has obscured much of the subtle complexities of the original. It's also missing the entire bottom half of the painting — but accompanying captions don't say so.
