Happy Leap Day!!

February 29 "Leap Day" is also the birthday of Leo von Klenze, court architect to Ludwig I of Bavaria.

Born in 1784, Leo von Klenze designed many of Munich's museums, as well as the imposing Walhalla outside of Regensburg. Perched above the Danube, the Walhalla is a hall of fame devoted to famous Germans.

The Avery Classics collection has many works by and about Leo von Klenze, including the Sammlung architektonischer Entwürfe für die Ausführung bestimmt oder wirklich ausgeführt von L. von K., which was published in Munich in 1830.
