Happy Birthday, Klimt: Neue Galerie Celebrates

"Beginning in May the Neue Galerie, whose collection of paintings and drawings by Gustav Klimt is considered by many to be the best in the country, will honor the 150th anniversary of his birth with an exhibition of his work. On view will be greatest hits from the collection, like the gold-flecked 1907 portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer that the museum’s co-founder Ronald S. Lauder bought for $135 million in 2006. The show will also feature paintings and drawings from Mr. Lauder’s personal collection and that of his family."

A Golden Kiss for Klimt

"A local celebrity during his lifetime, Viennese artist Gustav Klimt has become an international sensation in ours. His gilded 1907-08 painting "The Kiss" has turned into one of Vienna's leading tourist attractions, and his portraits, some of which sell for tens of millions of euros, are among the most highly valued paintings in the history of art.

This year, Vienna celebrates the 150th anniversary of Klimt's birth with 10 special exhibitions, many highlighting relatively unknown aspects of the artist's life and work."

Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer

"At the Neue Galerie on the Upper East Side, a pair of serene eyes gaze out from Gustav Klimt's 1907 masterpiece, "Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer." They betray little of the tumult behind the painting's byzantine history."
