Try out these scintillating, interactive Gustav Klimt paintings

This is one from the dusty vaults of Content Catnip and overdue for a revival. I created an interactive slider using a free tool involving Klimt’s classic paintings and a modern-day interpretation/re-enactment by photographer Inge Prader. I hope you like it!

Push the slider from left to right to see the Klimt paintings come alive…

Inge Prader is the photographer responsible for this highly stylised ensemble of models languidly posing in such scintillating and baroque surroundings. Inge has perfectly paid tribute to Klimt’s legendary works.

The occasion for inspiration was the 23rd Annual Life Ball in Vienna. A celebration of artistic plenitude and all of the verdant symbolism of Klimt’s Vienna.

I really hope you enjoy these

Making Nostalgia With JuxtaposeJS

To add a further touch of magic to this art, I used a free tool called JuxtaposeJS by Knight Lab. It’s a content creation tool that’s ideal for creating before and after shots, as well as comparing historical moments frozen in time with present day settings.
