I Klimpted Marilyn Monroe

Wracked with wanderlust, I discovered the fabulous Austrian artist Gustave Klimt, famous for intertwined mermaids and women stamped in gold, would've been 105 this year. (Updated: See Klimt's bio, an exhibition schedule and 80 of his luscious paintings at Artsy.)

Catch a Klimt traveling exhibit this year in Venice, Milan, and Florence to celebrate his 105th birthday. Not "The Kiss," one of Vienna's major tourist attractions, but also jewels and furnishings from the fin de siecle, end of 19th century.

If you miss the Italian shows, no worries, this loot will return to Vienna. Meanwhile, Klimt yourself to cure your wanderlust.
Vienna waits for you.
