One thought on “B Items

  1. comment on “191. Kindskopf-Helnwein Wien, Germany”:
    Wien (Vienna) is not in Germany. It is the capital of Austria.
    “Images from Niederösterreichischen Landesmuseums in Germany” is also wrong. The “Niederösterreichisches Landesmuseum” (you use the genitive of the two words) is a museum in Niederösterreich (engl. “Lower Austria”), which is a province in Austria.
    The images are not “from” the museum but were exhibited by the museum. It was an exhibition of images by the Austrian artist Gottfried Helnwein who also made a potrait of Burroughs. The painting is currently in possession of teh San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
