In October 2013, director and visual artist Robert Wilson premiered ''Portraits of Lady Gaga'' as part of his solo exhibition 'Living Rooms.' Robert got inspiration from paintings in the Louvre’s collection and conversations with Lady Gaga regarding ideas about beauty, torture, sainthood, and perception.
Lady Gaga starred in Wilson's video interpretations of Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres’s 1806 work Portrait of Mademoiselle Caroline Rivière, Jacques-Louis David’s 1806 painting The Death of Marat, and Andrea Solari’s 1507 work The Head of Saint John The Baptist. Lady Gaga recites a text by the Marquis de Sade while the portraits are showing.
Today, a behind-the-scenes video has been revealed showing from the sketch process to costume fittings, makeup, production, and post-production such as VFX and color correction. The final video was also featured before the 'ARTPOP Fashion Film' at the artRAVE: The ARTPOP Ball.
