Gustav Klimt, Lake Attersee. A “frame filled with lake water” is what one contemporary art critic called Gustav Klimt’s 1901 painting of Lake Attersee. Although several commentators are of the opinion that this lake painting is almost even abstract, it was precisely such radical reduction that enabled Klimt to put to canvas the actual mood evoked by the lake.
I love black and white photography. Maybe this comes from my love of old movies. I'd like to make sure there are personal touches throughout my home. I think a wall of my favorite photographs would look great by my stairs -- especially since my perspective would always be changing. I bet I would notice new things depending on whether I was a few steps above of below the wall.
