The Belvedere Museum in Vienna houses some of the paintings by Gustav Klimt. One in particular is The Kiss and you see renditions of this painting everywhere in Vienna – on bags, and satchels, and eyeglass cases. I was thrilled to see it.
The grounds …
Not a bad place to house some beautiful paintings, eh?
Beautiful stairs … beautiful ceilings …
This is a copy of the painting in the front lobby so you can take pictures with it.
Here’s the painting all by itself – sans. me.
To see the real painting, we had to dodge the frantically waving selfie sticks of dozens of visitors and it really wasn’t worth trying to get a photo with the real thing. I did spend plenty of time gazing at it.
Another Gustav Klimt – his faces are breathtaking.
And a Monet.
And a hot chocolate and coffee at the end.
