Photo Scrapbook: Vienna, Part II

At the Upper Belvedere museum complex, we visited the Gustav Klimt exhibition highlighted by "The Kiss" and "Judith" from Klimt's "Golden Period." The 1907 portrait of "Adele Bloch-Bauer I" is also from the "Golden Period." We saw it at the Neue Galerie New York, 1048 Fifth Avenue, while we participated in the New York Comic-Con April 18-20, 2008. The 3-day convention is scheduled for Feb. 6-8, 2009.

One afternoon we toured the Kunsthistoriche Museum, which holds the Hapsburg's personal art collection.

Twenty-three people participated in the Imperial Cities tour. We enjoyed the camaraderie, whether grabbing a quick meal - a salmon entree for Doug and whitefish for me, including wine, cost $32.95 euros - or enjoying a 4-course dinner at the Schonbrunn Summer Palace restaurant before attending a Viennese classical concert.
