The Lady in Gold: The Extraordinary Tale of Gustav Klimt's Masterpiece

The Lady in Gold: The Extraordinary Tale of Gustav Klimt's Masterpiece

The true story that inspired the movie Woman in Gold starring Helen Mirren and Ryan Reynolds.

By Anne-Marie O'Connor

Contributor to the Washington Post Anne-Marie O’Connor brilliantly regales us with the galvanizing story of Gustav Klimt’s 1907 masterpiece—the breathtaking portrait of a Viennese Jewish socialite, Adele Bloch-Bauer. The celebrated painting, stolen by Nazis during World War II, subsequently became the subject of a decade-long dispute between her heirs and the Austrian government.

When the U.S. Supreme Court became involved in the case, its decision had profound ramifications in the art world. Expertly researched, masterfully told, The Lady in Gold is at once a stunning depiction of fin-de siècle Vienna, a riveting tale of Nazi war crimes, and a fascinating glimpse into the high-stakes workings of the contemporary art world.
