My Collection - The Museum Collection : Gustav Klimt

I'm not into art, don't know anything about it, if someone start a conversation with me, it won't be a conversation as I'll just listen...the little I know I studied at school.

Well, Barbie teach us something huh?

Gustav Klimt (1862 - 1918) was a Austrian painter and had the female body as his principal subject.

Some of his work:

The Barbie doll was designed by Linda Kyaw.

"Gustav Klimt’s glorious-in-gold masterwork Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I is equally arresting in Linda’s hands. “Klimt is one of my favorite artists,” she says, “and for this piece, I picked the stunning Aphrodite face sculpt because it bears a striking resemblance to Adele.” Linda also notes that all dolls are posable for a variety of different looks."  -

I got mine as a gift to myself. The time I got it I had a little extra money and decided to get a Barbie doll. I got her at - She was on sale and the shipping was free.

The designer tried to get as close as possible of the paint, the face is very similar to the artist piece, I really liked the face by the way.

 She's a pink label and was released in 2011

I wouldn't mind the other two to complete the set - She's part of the 2011 The Museum Collection ( Leonardo da Vinci, Vincent Van Gogh, and Gustav Klimt )

Hope you enjoyed learning, if you didn't know him, a pinch about this artist as I did!

See ya!

  3. Hello from Spain: congratulations on your new Barbie. This Barbie is very interesting because she represents art. She wears a dress with the colors that the artist uses in his work. A great buy. Keep in touch

    1. Hi Marta,
      I also liked that way they place the colors together to represent the artist work.
