Goofs

When Max and Clara go to see Klimt's Beethoven Frieze, it is depicted as framed canvases mounted on wooden blocks, free-standing in the middle of the room. This is incorrect: in actuality Klimt painted the frieze directly onto the walls of the entrance hall of the exhibition. A frieze is by definition a painting, sculpture or other decorative element applied or attached to the walls of a room or building, typically just below the ceiling or cornice.

Also, the Beethoven Frieze would no longer have been on exhibit in 1906, when this story takes place. It was painted in 1902 specifically for the 14th Vienna Secessionist exhibition commemorating Beethoven that year, and was sold to a collector in 1903, at which point the sections of wall containing the frieze were removed from the gallery. The frieze was preserved but was not publicly exhibited again until 1986. See more »

Turn of the century new specialization in medicine

I'm a sucker for this stuff. Can't wait to read the books off which this show was based.

Too many comparisons to Sherlock in these reviews. Benedict Cumberbatch had quite a bit to do with the success of that series. Matthew Beard is not Benedict Cumberbatch. He's not supposed to be. He's the cool, collected, scientist. And he plays that rather well.

When he ran up the stairs to change for dinner, the way his hands moved, he seemed - to use modern definitions - somewhat feminine. It would be interesting if that's something this show explored - what it was like to be gay in 1906 Vienna for a student of Freud.
