I was at the Vienna Museum the other day and I saw the weirdest piece of art. It was this strange 18th century head with this bizarre expression like he was under extreme stress and strain. It was quite striking and memorable. But I didn’t have anywhere to place it. By complete chance, I read today today about the sculptor of that and 60-some odd other similar heads, Franz Xaver Messerschmidt. Really fascinating stuff.
