This Adele statue is part of our Gustav Klimt Collection. For over 50 years, Parastone has successfully designed high-quality reproductions of timeless masterpieces. The collection “Mouseion” is devoted to making exact three-dimensional representations of masterpieces of many artists. This beautiful hand-painted resin statue is a reproduction of the Austrian Symbolist’s masterpiece “Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I” (1903-7) also known as “The woman in Gold” (1903-7).
Klimt’s work “Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I” was commissioned by Adele’s husband, Ferdinand Bloch-Bauer a banker and sugar producer, and it is representative of Gustav Klimt lavish gilding and organic art nouveau patterning. Following the Anschluss of Austria by Nazi Germany, Ferdinand Bloch-Baer fled Austria leaving behind much of his belongings and art collection, including “The Woman in gold”. The painting was stolen by the Nazis and displayed at the Österreichische Galerie Belvedere. In 2006 the Bloch-Bauer family were able to recover the painting and sold it Ronald Lauder, co-founder of the Neue Galerie in New York, where it currently resides.
