Our movie choice. . .
I'm sure you will recognize the painting by Gustav Klimt's, 'The Lady in Gold,' or as it was originally named 'Portrait of Adele Bloch-Baurer,' the subject of the movie.
I'm embarrassed to say that I have no recollection of any of these event that were on going for ten years.
I enjoyed the movie so much that I wanted to learn more about the events that surround this famous painting. I was able to find this non-fiction book that gives the history of the painter, Adele, and Vienna.
Here is a photo of Maria Bloch-Baurer Altmann, reunited with the portrait of her Aunt Adele.
Both the movie and the book has gotten mixed reviews. For several years, I have become very interested in history, so the movie and book, which does have some very dry spots, interest me. Has anyone else seen the movie, or remember hearing about Maria's struggle for ten years trying to get back the painting? I would enjoy hearing your thoughts.
