In June, 2006, Ron Lauder paid $135 Million dollars for the Klimt painting of Adele Bloch-Bauer. Today, the painting hangs in Lauder's Neue Galerie in New York City. Five of Klimt's paintings (taken illegally by the Nazis) were restored back to their original owner, Maria Altmann, who eventually sold the paintings to Mr. Lauder.
Join us as Dr. Clair Robertson of the Collin College Art Department shares the background and biography of the Austrian Painter, Gustav Klimt.
