Klimt Tip...But Hurry

Vienna.  While the Belvedere Palace houses the majority of Gustav Klimt's works in Vienna, including his most famous work, The Kiss—and they are great—I've suddenly become a much bigger fan of Klimt, thanks to the Kunsthistorisches Museum.  They've constructed an elevated bridge so visitors can get close to several of Klimt's paintings decorating the museum's high walls, near the ceiling.  Amazingly beautiful!  I highly recommend seeing them before the museum removes the bridge January 6, 2013.

Sadly, photos are not allowed so I can't share any images  (ten of them are on the museum's website).  However, as Klimt often painted wealthy women, perhaps this ad image can substitute for the moment and pay homage to the spirit of Klimt.
