All about the Art – Belvedere Museum Vienna

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 …

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.
