Ever since I saw this man looking at this painting by Klimt at an exhibition of Klimt’s work at the San Francisco Legion of Honor a few years ago, I’ve wanted to paint this scene. (In the reference photo, the man is actually looking at the label so I pushed him over a bit!). I was drawn to the similarity of the two hats worn by the viewer and painting's subject as well as the connection in colour of their clothing. As always, it’s tricky recreating an art piece originally done in oil with a limited palette of soft pastels!
Gustav Klimt, The Black-Feathered Hat, 1910, oil on canvas. Size and location unknown.
