One Less Gawker

Neue Galerie recently rescinded the $50 fee for a "more private" viewing of Klimt's "Adele Bloch-Bauer I," after gallery members complained. (I have a feeling that members didn't want the commoners mingling with the bluebloods.) However, I was more shocked at the regular admission price of $15. I thought I would be able to see the painting for free! I ain't paying no 15 bucks to enter a gallery, even if it is to see the most expensive painting in the world. (Gallery members can rejoice again: one less gawker to deal with.)
