Novel set in pre-war London and Guernsey
The Lady in Gold
Era(s): First half of the 20th Century
Partly the story of Adele Bloch-Bauer, who is the subject of the painting later renamed by Austria as “The Lady in Gold” – was she one of Klimt’s lovers? Who’s to know? An intimate portrait of her in paint and a portrait of her and her family. And partly this is the story of how a brave relative fought to retrieve the painting after the Nazi lootings.
