Interesting statue outside the Belvedere Palace.
We enter the palace (art museum) and find Hercules hard at work.
The Kiss is an oil-on-canvas painting with added gold leaf, silver and platinum by the Austrian painter Gustav Klimt. It was painted in 1907 and 1908, during the height of what scholars call his "Golden Period". The painting depicts a couple embracing each other, their bodies entwined in elaborate beautiful robes decorated in a style influenced by the contemporary Art Nouveau style and the organic forms of the earlier Arts and Crafts movement. The painting is considered a masterpiece of Vienna Secession (local variation of Art Nouveau) and Klimt's most popular work.
Mariahilfer Strasse stroll - just a stroll, with lots of people watching, mostly all locals here.
