"Beethoven Frieze" (1902) by Gustav Klimt

Gustav Klimt (1862–1918) was an Austrian Symbolist painter and one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Art Nouveau movement. His major works include paintings, murals, sketches and other art objects, many of which are on display in the Vienna Secession gallery. Klimt's primary subject is the female body, and his works are marked by a frank eroticism. (source)

Doesn't that monster in the middle look like it could have from "Where The Wild Things Are" (1963) by Maurice Sendak?
