The painting “Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I” also called “The lady in gold” (1903-7) 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.
