Last Saturday we celebrated Gustav Klimt’s 150th birthday. On this occasion all the guests of Boutiquehotel Stadthalle received a complimentary glass of jam, decorated with one of Klimt’s paintings!
Currently there are a lot of exhibitions to celebrate Gustav Klimt:
Leopold Museum: “Klimt: up close and personal”
Belvedere: Belvedere hosts the largest Klimt collection worldwide.
Arts-History Museum: For the first time paintings of the young Klimt can be looked at from the Klimt bridge in 12 meters height.
Have fun in visiting the exhibitions!!
The 29th Vienna City Marathon will take place on the 15th of April 2012. The whole city will be moving. The marathon is THE sports event in Vienna and enjoys numerous visitors each year. Come and experience Vienna while doing some good to your body.
2012 is dedicated to Klimt due to his 150th birthday celebration. On the 24th of February a new exhibition “Klimt: up close and personal” started at Leopold Museum. The collection reveals images, letters and insights around Klimt. It will show masterpieces owned by Leopold Museum, but also national and international loans.
– a kiss changes the world
2012 will be dedicated to Gustav Klimt. Gustav Klimt was a painting genius and pioneer of the Modern era around 1900. Most of his life he lived in Vienna. Klimt revolutionized the art of painting and his works continue to fascinate to this day. His best known painting “The kiss” can now be seen at the Vienna Belvedere. In 2012 he would have celebrated his 150th birthday. Many museums in Vienna use this as an occasion and present special exhibitions.
Our special suggestion is the Klimt Villa in the 13th district of Vienna. Until his death he had his studio there.
Here is a list of all the exhibitions of next year!
