Floge opened the world of fashion for Klimt. Just like how Belle opened the idea of true love for Beast. Certainly, Beast has to have this painting on his castle. (Source: Google Arts & Culture)

The Sleeping Beauty

Princess Aurora and Prince Phillip from The Sleeping Beauty (1959 Walt Disney Animated Film) based on Edmund Leighton’s “The Accolade” (1908)

The Accolade is a famous painting by British artist Edmund Leighton. Chivalry is the main subject of this painting. The painting depicts an accolade. In other words, the ceremony to confer knighthood. Gromo switched the young queen as Princess Aurora and the knight as Prince Phillip. Meanwhile, the audiences ere replaced by the fairy godmothers and Aurora’s parents. But, let’s hope that Maleficent won’t get mad again for not being invited.


Ella from Cinderella (1950 Walt Disney Animated Musical Fantasy) based on Fausto Zonaro’s “Young Girl Carrying a Pumpkin” (1889)

Fausto Zonaro is an Italian artist who worked in the Ottoman Empire. Subsequently, he became an important figure in the development of Western painting in the said empire. The original painting depicts a young woman carrying a pumpkin. Zonaro is known for being good at presenting texture and contrast through his paintings. Gromo replaced the young woman with Cinderella. In addition, he put the mice along with the princess as she walks. It looks like fairy godmother is going to make a glass carriage out of that pumpkin again.
