Description

Gustav Klimt exerted significant influence on the history of art. His revolutionary
approach to painting resulted in a new quality in fine arts. The painting
“Portrait of a Lady”, 1916-17, shows a woman in a patterned dress. An
X-ray examination revealed that the work of art is an altered version of the
“Portrait of a Young Woman” originally depicted with a hat and a scarf.
Today the cost of the canvas, once stolen and found years later, is estimated
for 66 million dollars. The series encompasses the following works of art:
1. Portrait of Friederike-Maria Beer 2. Portrait of a Lady 3. The Dancer.
