Klimt’s Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I. Paintings like this don’t come on the market very often, for Klimt’s jewelled sarcophagus-like portrait of one of his many Jewish patrons in fin de siecle Vienna hung in that city’s Belvedere museum until it was prised out of this major public collection by law. For it had been seized by the Nazis, then wrongly kept in the gallery through the post-war era until a court awarded it to Bloch-Bauer’s heirs, who sold it. This is a treasure.
