Holmes’ mugshot was released just a few hours after he made first court appearance. CBS reports that Holmes, who allegedly told police that he “was the joker” after his arrest, entered court with orange-red hair and a maroon jailhouse jumpsuit.
New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said after the shooting that Holmes had dyed his hair red and told police that he was the Joker, Batman’s enemy in The Dark Knight.

Kelly said:
“We have some information, most of it is public. It clearly looks like a deranged individual. He had his hair painted red, he said he was ‘The Joker,’ obviously the ‘enemy’ of Batman.”
Holmes appearance in court today, and the mugshot that was just released, confirm at least part of Kelly’s account. Police have not elaborated on Holmes’ joker comment and at the moment the suspect is not cooperating.

Gustav Klimt

Book description ;
Gustav Klimt was born on July 14, 1862. He was a Symbolist painter that was part of the Vienna Secession movement. He studied at Vienna School of Arts and Crafts under a scholarship. Under his training, his early style was considered as academic. In 1880, Klimt began working with his brother, Ernst and a friend, Franz Matsch, they had many successful commissions. Gustav was recognized with many merits and honorary memberships over the years.
In 1892, both Klimt’s father and brother, Ernst, died. This tragedy led Gustav to taking over the financial responsibilities for both families and ultimately his style changed. He became one of the founding members of the Vienna Secession in 1897. Gustav continued to paint on commission, with his style becoming more provocative as he progressed. Some of his most popular work came during this period; The Kiss and Adele Bloch-Bauer. Klimt worked from his home, where he was secluded and concentrated on his art and the Secessionist Movement. He died on February on 6, 1918 during the influenza epidemic.

Gustav Klimt art book contains 50+ reproductions of Symbolist paintings.
