Since you speak about Schiele and Klimt, are you fond of Art Nouveau? Budapest has some magnificent examples.
Louis XIV is both French and rather masculine-heavy in its gravitas. It's really the Louis XV style that tends to be more "feminine," thanks to Madame de Pompadour.
Indeed, I however, only peruse art, and interior design with acquaintances, by day I'm a banker.
Though I cannot say that Art Nouveau is a penchant of mine, at times it can be rather pleasing. I'm also partial to Art Deco, though it is over rated.
Impressionism has to be my real penchant, my wife Rocco.
Louis furniture is nice, but too much of something that is hard to live with, but nice to look at; rather like my wife!
