Last week I visited the newly opened "Palais Liechtenstein" in Vienna with the biggest private art collection in the world and one of the most fascinating libraries to visit. If you come to Vienna, don´t miss it. It is nearly as nice as the "Library Tower" Smile

I love this, as well as all your other work. You put so much detail into your it, it's really extraordinary. I, too, love old libraries. I love that warm, welcoming feeling. And you have depicted that really well. I guess I'll have to go to you should do more work, I would love to see it all.

thanks Ria. I just wanted to paint an atmospheric artwork without extreme action, effect and "stunning wowawhooopshs!" and it seems I managed it. A work of art inviting to sit down, look and enjoy. Reminds me to do similar basics work of feeling more often.

Franz, I also love libraries. But you painting seems to invite me to take some time, take place, and enjoy some good books. Wonderful atmosphere.

Nice atmospher. I can't help, but think there is something really eerie lurking behind me. Maybe Mr. Plum and a candlestick. o")

I am really impressed! Just minutes after having sent the new art I get the first messages! My compliments to the epilogue staff for this perfect service!
And thanks to Sarah for your warm comment. I really love old libraries. I was inspired to this art by a visit to the abbey of Herzogenburg (Austria) in a guided tour to the old Library where I read in wonderfully crafted books "written and painted in 1491!!" for example.

Beautiful warmth and glow in this painting. I can almost smell the parchment. Wink

Art at its best.
