Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer

Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer

By Sophie Lillie and Georg Gaugusch

Few paintings have captured the public's imagination as thoroughly as Gustav Klimt's 1907 Adele Bloch-Bauer I. Klimt's painting of Adele not only rendered her irresistible beauty and sensuality; its intricate ornamentation and exotic motifs heralded the dawn of modernity and a culture intent on radically forging a new identity. But as synonymous as her likeness has become with Vienna’s Golden Age, the real Adele Bloch-Bauer remained somewhat shielded from the public eye. This book attempts to reveal and honor the remarkable life and legacy of Adele Bloch-Bauer and her husband Ferdinand, and their patronage of one of Austria’s most radical forebears of modernity.
