Book Club The Lady In Gold by Anne-Marie O'Connor

October 19, 2017, 6:00 pm

Free and open to all! • The book is available for purchase in the Museum Shop for $17.95

Join the museum’s book club for a discussion of Lady in Gold: The Extraordinary Tale of Gustav Klimt’s Masterpiece, Portrait of Adele Block-Bauer, a book that brilliantly tells 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.

The discussion will conclude with a tour of Alchemy: Transformations in Gold.
