♦ Happy 37th Birthday Ian ♦
guy, look at the glasses my roommate got me for my bday
am so happ rn, oh my god
at first i thought my parents got me a copy of iron man autographed by greg land and almost pissed myself laughing
but then i looked closer
it’s autographed by Stan Lee
i also got some comics, marvel apparel, a 3DS + Animal Crossing, a tea maker, and the Pacific Rim art book (which won’t be here for a while bc they’re out of them for a while). all of which are fabulous, holy shit am crying bc of everything,
BUT STAN LEE, GUYS
look at how quality the birthday card my parents sent me is, the bracelet even plays AC/DC’s “Back in Black”
so i got this big package in the mail, and almost thought it was going to be an assemble-it-yourself jaeger
after opening the massive box, i discovered just how well my family knows me (despite not sending me a jaeger)
my family is kind of really awesome
Happy birthday to Gustav Klimt, born on this day in 1862.
Don’t miss a rare opportunity to see Klimt’s “Frauenbildnis (Portrait of a Woman)” in Gallery 158, on loan to the Museum from The Lewis Collection. Klimt began this piece in 1917 but it was discovered unfinished in the artist’s studio after his death in February 1918—you’ll notice this work is sketchier than most of Klimt’s densely decorated canvases. It is thought to be his third work to portray Maria (“Ria”) Munk, the daughter of Alexander and Aranka Pulitzer Munk, who had shot herself in 1911 at the age of 24, in despair over a lover.
