Gustav Klimt's last Atelier
Villa Klimt at Feldmühlgasse


On the easel, a reproduction
of one of Klimt's Attersee paintings,
next to it a palette and paint brushes


On the black and white striped silk sofa,
a blue robe like the ones he loved to wear
and a few of his figure drawings


"There is nothing special about me.
I am a painter who paints day after day
from morning to night...
Who ever wants to know something about me...
ought to look carefully at my pictures."
Quoted from
"Commentary on a non-existent self-portrait"
Wikipedia, "Gustav Klimt"


Klimt Villa
Feldmühlgasse 11
13th District (Hietzing)

The Klimt Villa is easily reached
by public transport, either tram #58
or U4 subway, a few minutes from Schönbrunn

  2. A beautiful villa, and a nice setting, even though they are reproductions, for art.

  7. That second picture from the bottom's a bit worrying.... These extreme diets are VERY UNHEALTHY

  8. Have I told you how much I like his paintings? Sadly I've only seen one in person at a museum in Prague.
