Klimt, Woman in Gold

The Woman in Gold (1907) by Gustav Klimt

Gustav Klimt was an Austrian symbolist painter who lived from 1862 to 1918. The Woman in Gold is a portrait of a wealthy society woman that Klimt knew named Adele Bloch-Bauer (1881-1925). Her husband, Ferdinand Bloch-Bauer, was a wealthy industrialist who commissioned Klimt to paint the portrait of his wife. This painting was plundered by the Nazis during World War II and is the subject of the 2015 movie, Woman in Gold.
