Gustav Klimt had a style of his own, and make reproductions of Klimt's paintings is a separate work.
He made a lot of portraits, at least for his most famous works and used patterns that served as a background for his paintings. We recognize a painting by Gustav Klimt by the richness of its decorations, the profusion of details, the precision of his portraits and the very particular use of colors.
What makes his paintings particularly interesting to reproduce is that Klimt used an original painting technique which employed gold leaf.
The use of gold leaf is neither a new nor an extraordinary technique. The decorators used it a lot, and many objects prior to the 18th century are covered with it.
On the other hand, it is practically only Klimt who used gold leaf to enhance his oil paintings ... and consequently we, who now reproduce his paintings.
Only some of our Klimt paintings are inlaid with gold leaf, as the master did:

Klimt began to gain popularity through his activity as a decorative painter, painting historical scenes and figures to beautify public buildings. He would continue to refine the qualities of the shimmering patterns of his almost abstract compositions during this period, known as the “Golden Phase”, which would eventually become the true subjects of his paintings.
Although a painter of the “Fine Arts”, Klimt was an extraordinary emissary of the adequacy between the Fine Arts and the decorative art. Having experienced his early success painting on architectural backgrounds, he accepted that many of his best-known works were intended to complement other interior design elements, thus creating a Total artwork (A total work of art). Later in his career, he will work in concert with artists from Wiener Werkstatte (L'atelier Viennois), the Austrian design organization, which aimed to improve the quality and charm of everyday objects.
Klimt was one of the most important founders of the Vienna Secession of 1897, and was its first president, although he was not chosen for his artistic achievements - the number of his works being relatively limited at this time - but rather for the youth of his personality and his desire to challenge the artistic authorities of the time. His power and world renown as an Art Nouveau painter contributed greatly to the success of the early Secession - but also to the decline of the movement when he left it in 1905.
Although Klimt's art is now widely popularized, it remained neglected for most of the 20th century. His works in public spaces sparked swarms of opposition in his day, having been accused of obscenity because of their erotic content, which prompted Klimt to withdraw from government tenders in one fell swoop. His drawings were no less provocative and reflected the expression of his considerable sexual appetite.
Despite his fame and generosity in supporting young artists, such as Egon Schiele and Oskar Kokoschka, Klimt had hardly any followers and his works have always been considered very personal and special, until today. However, Gustav Klimt's paintings share many formal and thematic characteristics with the Expressionists and Surrealists of the interwar years, although many of them were not familiar with him.
