Ball point pen on today's newsprint

I've long been an admirer of Gustav Klimt, more for his drawings and draftsmanship than his decorative paintings. I'm planning a pilgrimage to the Neue Galerie in New York, dedicated to the art  of early twentieth century German and Austrian art, where they are Celebrating the 150th Anniversary of the birth of the great artist. The centerpiece of the show revolves around Klimt’s portrait and preliminary drawings of the Viennese socialite Adele Bloch-Bauer.
