Klimt wrote little about his vision or his methods. He kept no diary. In a rare writing called “Commentary on a non-existent self-portrait”, he wrote,
“I have never painted a self-portrait. I am less interested in myself as a subject for a painting than I am in other people, above all women…There is nothing special about me. I am a painter who paints day after day from morning to night…Who ever wants to know something about me… ought to look carefully at my pictures.”
– Gustav Klimt
