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.
