It took Gustav Klimt three years to complete his masterpiece portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer. Commissioned by her husband, the finished painting was only at the beginning of a tangled history that would include a Nazi seizure, protracted court proceedings over its rightful ownership, a record-making sale (for a purported $135 million) and continuing controversy. Anne-Marie O'Connor's history delves into the transatlantic passage of a beguiling lady in gold. A riveting, award-winning read; now in trade paperback and NOOK Book.
