Gustav Klimt in New York

 Mada Primavesi at the New York Metropolitan museum of art.
 Serena Lederer at the New York Metropolitan museum of art.
 Oops, this is an Egon Schiele, at MOMA.
MOMA. As a consolation for missing the 'dame in gold' I had to console myself with seeing other Gustav Klimt, both at the Metropolitan museum of art and at MOMA, museum of modern art! They were all wonderful. What an incredible experience! Egon Schiele was a protege of Klimt. I saw a lot of Egon Schiele at the Guggenheim in Bilbao, Spain. I began to love his nudes. Klimt loved to paint women. He never painted them twice except for Adele Bloch-Bauer. I love both Bloch-Bauer, I'm partial, I think both of them were among his best works!
