Description

Welcome to the Jo’s Art History Podcast, a podcast which celebrates all things art historical every single day!


IT’S CHRISTMAS!!!!


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!
