Few paintings have captured the public's imagination as thoroughly as Gustav Klimt's 1907 portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer, the wife of a prominent Viennese sugar manufacturer. The suggestive, gold-leafed painting not only rendered Bloch-Bauer's irresistible beauty and sensuality; its intricate ornamentation and exotic motifs heralded the dawn of Modernity and a culture intent on radically forging a new identity. With this painting, Klimt created a secular icon that would come to stand for the aspirations of a whole generation in fin-de-si cle Vienna. But as synonymous as this famous model's likeness has become with Vienna's Golden Age, the real Adele Bloch-Bauer remained somewhat shielded from the public eye. Filled with well-chosen details, documentary photographs and historically related artworks, this singular, scholarly study attempts to reveal and honor the remarkable life and legacy of Adele Bloch-Bauer and her husband, Ferdinand Bloch, and their patronage of one of Austria's most radical forebears of Modernity.

Maria Altmann and her husband fled their homeland when the Nazi regime came to Austria and threatened their lives. They left their loved ones, their property, and everything that was in it--including their family’s artwork. Altmann eventually settled in the United States, but did not forget the past that was stolen from her. Several dozens of years later, Altmann had her day in court, and changed everything. Because of her will to reclaim what rightfully belonged to her family, museums worldwide were forced to give back artwork that had been stolen and looted. This book paints a new picture of how Holocaust survivors rebuilt and reclaimed the lives that were taken from them.

Gustav Klimt, one of the great painters of fin de siècle Austria—and the subject of Helen Mirren’s latest film, Woman in Gold—takes center stage in this passionate and atmospheric debut novel, which reimagines the tumultuous relationship between the Viennese painter and Emilie Flöge, the woman who posed for his masterpiece The Kiss, and whose name he uttered with his dying breath. Vienna in 1886 was a city of elegant cafés, grand opera houses, and a thriving and adventurous artistic community. It is here where the twelve-year-old Emilie meets the controversial libertine and painter. Hired by her bourgeois father for basic drawing lessons, Klimt introduces Emilie to a subculture of dissolute artists, wanton models, and decadent patrons that both terrifies and inspires her. The Painted Kiss follows Emilie as she blossoms from a naïve young girl to one of Europe's most exclusive couturiers—and Klimt's most beloved model and mistress. A provocative love story that brings to life Vienna's cultural milieu, The Painted Kiss is as compelling as a work by Klimt himself.
