Wonderful Klimt piece

Mr. Bonzo loves Klimt and the Neue Gallerie. Mrs. Bonzo, an artsy type, took Mr. Bonzo to the Neue when it first opened. Lauder money makes it possible - see the recent New Yorker article on the acquisition of the golden girl (Adele Bloch-Bauer) for big bucks.

But the most interesting Klimt-related piece I've run across in a long while is to be found on a great blog, Slaves of Academe. The 21 January entry, "In the City", is highly recommended. The illustrations are beautifully selected and hopefully allowable by the fair use doctrine.
