Time travel to fin-de-siecle Vienna

What a time it was: Gustav Klimt was painting The Kiss, while Freud was exploring the subconscious. Mahler was composing his heart-breaking music (and lying on Freud’s couch while he anguished over his wife Alma’s infidelity).  From the arts and crafts movement, known as the WienerWerkstatte, emerged art nouveau and deco-like designs that still beguile today. The stylish, provocative eroticism of that time remains part of the Vienna vibe, along with a robust enthusiasm for the arts.
