After Albania

we spent 3 days in Vienna. 
It was an artsy few days, well Vienna is an artsy sort of place......famous as the home of Klimt.....we saw several Klimt pieces including The Kiss and The Beethoven Frieze (no photos allowed) and this, the death part of Death and Life



 I also discovered a new-to-me-artist ......Egon Schiele....he was a protege of Klimt and you can see the influence but his work is also different



 One of the things I wanted to see while in Vienna was the Hundertwasserhaus......a collaboration between artist Hundetwasser and architect Joseph Krawina......it was AMAZING!!
And I have to say it reminded me a little of the Gaudi stuff in Barcelona.




 Then a short walk down the road you find.....

 KunstHausWien........Hudertwassers museum and gallery




 inside was a cafe designed by Hundertwasser .....nice apple cake:)

 and even the loo was decorated

OH Love seeing your travel pix Sue...this looks like such a lot of eye candy!
I am a BIG Klimt fan...we have a framed poster of Der Kuss above our bed...(sorry I got exciting hearing you got to see it in person!)
