Thrilled to see that the Wien Museum in Austria is the latest cultural institution to allow users to search for Open Access images from their online collections database. There are some very fine paintings contained within the collection and is well worth trawling through.

I enjoyed coming across this 1889 self-portrait by Johann Victor Krämer (1861-1949). It has a distinctive Withnail and I vibe about it.

Update - After spending a few minutes trawling through their brilliant online catalogue I've already come across a picture that hasn't been identified. The miniature bellow catalogued as 'Portrait of a gentleman in seventeenth century Spanish dress by Franz Kammer' is in fact a copy of Van Dyck's portrait of Francisco de Moncada by Van Dyck in the KHM, Vienna.
