...I took these off the internet.

We got to see the original of Gustav Klimt's 'Beethoven Frieze', the same piece that the Getty did a replica of for their recent show of Klimt's drawings.

It was FABulous. At the Getty they had put all the panels as they are here, high by the ceiling and you just looked up (way up). In this building they have provided a tall room-filling platform so your face is just a couple of feet away from the images.

On the one hand at the Getty you had a better feeling for the placement as the artist designed it to be seen, but on the other hand it was very cool to see all the details close up.
