We couldn't let today go by without mentioning that 14 July is the 150th birthday of Gustav Klimt which, according to the Art Media Agency, is marked by the opening of the Gustav Klimt centre in Kammer near Lake Attersee. The new centre is due to be a key venue for devotees of the Vienna Secession trailblazer, with more than 30 drawings and reproductions of Klimt's frieze sketches for the Stoclet Palace in Brussels on show in the launch exhibition. Gustav spent many happy hours in the region, depicting one of his favourite landmarks, Kammer Castle.
