Say Hello, Gustav

Jul 31, 2015


I recently saw the movie Woman in Gold about the legal battle to regain possession of a Gustav Klimt painting taken during the war. It stars Helen Mirren and Vancouver's own Ryan Reynolds, who was not as awful as many critics claimed. 

The movie is very pedestrian but it gives me an excuse to show off one of my prized possessions, a Gustav Klimt finger puppet acquired at the Belvedere Palace in Vienna a couple of years ago.
