Klimt At The National

17 of us went to the Klimt exhibition at the National Gallery. We drank Deutz on the way to London. Some had lunch at the National Restaurant before the show at 2 pm. It was disappointing that here were only a handful of Klimts on show together with other painters from Vienna. Here’s a pictorial record.

Comments:

  • “Another successful HMWS cultural event. The trip to London for “Facing the Modern; The Portrait in Vienna 1900” in the National Gallery was an enjoyable success. Starting with a Champagne and Smoked Salmon breakfast to celebrate Graeme’s birthday, the journey was comfortable and we had ample time to have lunch and appreciate paintings by Klimt, Schiele and Kokoschka and other Secessionists. On the return journey we all enjoyed good fun, excellent wines and the comfort of Eddie Brown’s VIP coach. Thank you, Bernard, for your endeavours on our behalf.” – Drs. Alisdair and Elma Stewart, Harrogate, 20 October

  • “Thank you for arranging such an enjoyable London excursion on Saturday; it was good, too, to have some free time to revisit favourite places in the Trafalgar area and our luxury coach certainly made the journey very comfortable and relaxing.” – Gail Bent, Harrogate, 22 October
