    Imperial Vienna--Arts & Music edition

    April 3, 2019 in Austria ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    For a Baroque style evening and wanting to party like they used to in the guest palace (because really, who wants the guests in your own palace) of Prince Eugene of Savoy (1663-1736), we travelled to Upper Belvedere Palace for first a guided tour of the Gustav Klimt art there (think Lady in Gold, although while she does not adorn the walls there The Kiss and many other Klimt works do) and then a private one-hour ensemble concert program of Mozart and Strauss including operatic duets and a few ballet pas de deuxes in the Marble Hall. Beats cable.Read more

    Vienna - Belvedere Palace

    June 27, 2016 in Austria ⋅ 🌧 16 °C

    We are only in Vienna for a day so it is going to be a busy day.

    First stop Belvedere Palace, Prince Eugene of Savoy 1663-1736 was a general and an art connoisseur, he built the Belvedere palace as his summer residence.

    Today, the Belvedere, one of the most important baroque buildings in Austria.

    The palace consists of two seperate buildings, the Upper and Lower Belvedere, which are connected by a stunning baroque garden

    Today it houses not only Austrian art from the Middle Ages to the present day, but also the world's largest Klimt collection, with the golden paintings "The Kiss" and "Judith" as the highlights. Masterpieces by Schiele and Kokoschka, as well as works of French Impressionism and the Vienna Biedermeier era round out the exhibition.

    Prince Eugene’s apartments and staterooms are located at the Lower Belvedere. The feudal splendor of the palace’s aristocratic original owner is reflected in the Hall of Grotesques, the Marble Gallery, and the Golden Room. The Lower Belvedere and the Orangery are used mainly for temporary exhibitions, while the Palace Stables are now home to some 150 objects of sacred medieval art that blend with the Baroque ambiance in a compelling fashion. The Palace Gardens are unfolding in strict symmetry along a central axis to the prestige building of the Upper Belvedere and features beautiful sculptures, fountains and cascades.

    Finding The Kiss

    February 23, 2018 in Austria ⋅ 🌫 0 °C

    This evening, after the House of the Sea, I decided to visit the Belvedere Museum where there was a lot of art. Art, I loved. I've found Klimts masterpieces and couldn't keep my eyes off. I am sure that I stared at The Kiss for over an hour because it's so moving. But not only Klimt held me hostage, Egon Schiele who painted The Embrace was contributing to that magic. Beside from that there was a lot to see. A lot of great paintings and statues and a great architecture.Read more
