Leopold Museum in Vienna Austria

Sunbonnet Sue Visits Austria
In February of 2016 I had the amazing experience of visiting the Leopold Museum in Vienna.

I knew nothing of Austrian art. The museum featured artists I really didn't know much about:  Klimpt and Schiele

I found Schiele's art to be amazing. His life was such a tragedy, with World War I shattering his world. He and his wife died young but he still produced an amazing collection. He liked to paint nudes and many of his works were destroyed, but what remains is so inspiring.

His landscapes look like quilts to me and I am planning on making quilts that reflects the landscapes he painted.

It was an eye-opening visit to an amazing museum.
