Product description

Review

"Fascinating. . . . A mesmerizing tale of art and the Holocaust." --The Washington Post

"A celebration of art and persistence. . . . O'Connor's book brings Klimt's exceptional portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer home, broadening the meaning of homeland at the same time." --The Christian Science Monitor

"Ms. O'Connor has told an important story." --The Wall Street Journal

"O'Connor skillfully filters Austria's troubled twentieth century through the life of Klimt's most beloved muse. . . . A nuanced view of a painting whose story transcends its own time." --Bookforum

"Captivating." --MORE Magazine

"Combines detailed reportage with passionate storytelling. . . . Unraveling the portrait's journey also reveals how global norms of art and war have changed, and the powerful roles that art plays in politics, society, identity and memory." --The Rumpus

"A fascinating book." --The Dallas Morning News

"Richly drawn. . . . Part history and part mystery, The Lady in Gold is a striking tale." --BookPage

"The lusciously detailed story of Gustav Klimt's most famous painting, detailing the relationship between the artist, the subject, their heirs and those who coveted the masterpiece. . . . Art-history fans will love the deep details of the painting, and history buffs will revel in the facts O'Connor includes as she exposes a deeper picture of World War II." --Kirkus Reviews

"Intriguing. . . . Poignant and convincing. . . . Vividly evokes the intellectually precocious and ambitious Adele's rich cultural and social milieu in Vienna, and how she became entwined with the charismatic, sexually charged, and irreverent Klimt." --Publishers Weekly

"Writing with a novelist's dynamism, O'Connor resurrects fascinating individuals and tells a many-faceted, intensely affecting, and profoundly revelatory tale of the inciting power of art and the unending need for justice." --Booklist (starred review)

Book Description

The riveting story of Gustav Klimt's most famous painting- how it was created, celebrated, seized by Nazis, and ultimately-after a lengthy and influential court case-restored to its rightful owner.
