kitsch

Postby Klimt » Fri Feb 08, 2008 10:09 pm

Whoever wants to know something about me - as an artist which alone is significant - they should look attentively at my pictures and there seek to recognise what I am and what I want.

In Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix movie (#5) one might say that Dolores Umbridge's office was decorated in Kitten Kitsch.
