"Fernand Edmond Jean Marie Khnopff (September 12, 1858 in Grembergen near Dendermonde, Belgium - November 12, 1921 in Brussels, Belgium) was a Belgian symbolist painter. - His motto "On a que soi" (=One has but oneself) was inscribed above the entrance door, in and his studio he painted in the middle of golden circle inscribed on the white mosaic floor"- Wiki

So amazing.. He used his sister as a subject quite often ..and was a big influence to Gustav Klimt
