A lost  early  work by artist Gustav Klimt   has reportedly been found in a garage in northern Austria.

The piece is a ceiling fresco  depicting  a trumpeting  cherub-like child draped in a red scarf against a sky-blue background.

It’s  said  to have once been part of the ceiling of Klimt’s Vienna studio, where he lived with his brother Ernst between 1883 and 1892.

Alfred Weidinger is  a Klimt expert and deputy director of the Belvedere museum, which displays many Klimt works.

He has expressed doubt that the painting is  by Gustav Klimt  and says there is  evidence to suggest  it was painted by the artist’s brother Ernst and at  best  the painting might be a collaborative effort by both brothers.
