The Lady in Gold: the Extraordinary Tale of Gustav Klimt's Masterpiece, Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer

 book cover imageThe Lady in Gold is the extraordinary, true story of Adele Bloch-Bauer, the famous artist Gustav Klimt - who painted her portrait and the lost world of fin-de-siecle and early 20th century Vienna, destroyed forever by the Nazis.
Sixty years after the painting was stolen by the Nazis, Adele's portrait became the subject of an almost decade long litigation between the Austrian government and the Bloch-Bauer heirs. Today, the portrait is housed in the Neue Galerie in New York City.
If you are interested in cultural history, art thefts,early 20th-century Vienna or biography, this new title will appeal to you.
