Gustav Klimt was inspired by a golden cupola he saw in Venice; the prominent use of gold can first be traced back to Pallas Athene and Judith

One of the biggest Gustv Klimt exhibitions is presented at  Belvedere, the beautiful castle of Prince Eugene of Savoy one of the most successful military commanders in modern European history.

On Gustav Klimts birthday, July 14 there was a big celebration at the castle with many creative workshops. Did you ever print your own Klimt coin?
