Photographer's Note

I looked at the photos from Vienna on TE and it seems that everything has been shown already. So what to post that would be new? And I found! This is view of the stairs of Albertina, with the reproduction of Durer's Hare. In the background one can see the back of Staatsopera.

The Albertina is a museum in the Innere Stadt (First District) of Vienna, Austria. It houses one of the largest and most important print rooms in the world with approximately 65,000 drawings and approximately 1 million old master prints, as well as more modern graphic works, photographs and architectural drawings.he range of outstanding works at the Albertina span from Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and Raphael through Albrecht Duerer, Rembrandt and Rubens to Lorrain, Delacroix, Manet and Cezanne.

The collections of the 20th century include works by Schiele,Klimt and Kokoschka, as well as Warhol, Rauschenberg and Baselitz.

Young Hare (German: Feldhase) is a 1502 watercolour and bodycolour painting by German artist Albrecht Dürer. Painted in 1502 in his workshop, it is acknowledged as a masterpiece of observational art The subject is rendered with almost photographic accuracy, and although the piece is normally given the title Young Hare, the portrait is sufficiently detailed for the hare to be identified as a mature specimen.

I had today disappointing day. In the (late) morning I went to Schoenbrunn. There was a big queue and then I had to wait again for the entrance. I bought ticket for 4 attractions but then.. In the park there were preparing something and the whole view was spoiled by fences, cables, reflectors, big scene and so on . In the palace it was not allowed to make photos and it was such a crowd that it was difficult to see anything. Also the other attractions were not specially worth. So I had an impression that I lost time and money.
So my advice: there is a lot to see free in Schoenbrunn, think well before bying a ticket. Then I went to Schmetterling Haus. I was there some 25 years before and was impressed. Now it seemed to me there were not so many kinds of butterflies.

I should rather visit Albertina.
