(If you live in Melbourne and haven't seen this yet- look away now!) Ben took me to see this amazing, lovely and delicious exhibition at the NGV yesterday and it made me very happy...very!
I've had a thing for Klimt (particularly his square landscapes)for a long time- and I have a very expensive book on the Wiener Werkstatte textile movement that has a regular place on my coffee table, so I was prepared to be delighted ...and I was.
It was much bigger than some of the international blockbuster shows are, and I was thrilled to little tiny bits by the reproduction of Klimt's frieze in the fabulous Secession building. Sigh.
The only problem is that now I need another very expensive book on the Weiner Werkstatte postcards...
