BONUS EPISODE!! The History of Klimt's Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I a.k.a The Women in Gold!
Welcome to the Jo’s Art History Podcast, a podcast which celebrates all things art historical every single day!
So, what better way to spread the art history love and joy at this time of year than bringing you A BONUS EPISODE of the Jo’s Art History podcast!!!
On today’s episode I talk to you about one of art history’s greatest stories of looted art - Gustav Klimt's Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I.
Seized during the Nazi invasion of Vienna during world war 2, the work’s rightful owners had given up on ever getting the painting back until a scathing exposé was published in 1998 which CHANGED EVERYTHING!
This story is so good, it was even made into a movie!
