The photographer and artist Lilya Corneli and stylist Olga Schloemer launched the Project “To Be a Muse” after Corneli was inspired by Vienna’s great portrait painters, like Klimt and Schiele. She took a look-alike selfie, posted it on instagram and the concept was born. She then invited friends to reenact the artwork and now she offers two-day experiences for visitors to Vienna. tobeamuse.art
