The Essence of Klimt by Moises González' Compared To The Real Thing

I ran across these recreations of Gustav Klimt's work on the Behance network by photographer Moises González'and simply had to share them with you. As a long time fan of the Austrian painter, these fun recreations of his works captured my immediate attention. A clever group of talented folks have combined their photography, digital art, illustration, make-up, hair and styling (all found through Kattaca) to recreate some of Gustav's most famous paintings.

While other sites and blogs have shown these photos, I have placed them side by side - or underneath- with the originals by Klimt.

Actually I'd already done this comparison previously on my blog, you can check it here, in a ongoing series I have on using famous paintings as the basis for fashion editorials. I've dug up quite a few examples already, you might enjoy it!
