150 years to you, Gustav!

Austrian painter Gustav Klimt was born 150 years ago. 
He stirred up a number of scandals during his lifetime, 
but was also extremely successful,both as an artist and a ladies' man. 
Today, Klimt's paintings are known the world over. 
In 2006, his portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer changed hands for 110 million euros, 
setting a record at the time for the world's priciest painting.
