Vienna: Art & Design

Don’t miss this exhibition, which is currently on at the NGV. I spent quite a few hours there today totally absorbed by the many and varied works on display. Gustav Klimt and his fellow artists are well known and admired, but I was equally fascinated by Otto Wagner’s architecture.

The full size replica of the façade of the “Die Zeit” building was to me worth the visit by itself. Not just the incredible design and workmanship, but I was also very much taken by the font face used in the signage.

If you are interested in paintings, drawings, photography, furniture, glass, silver or fashion of that time – it’s all there. Fantastic stuff!
