"Portrait of a Lady" of Klimt

"Portrait of a Lady" of Klimt

The newfound Portrait of a Lady by Gustav Klimt is due to appear in public soon. The painting was stolen from the Ricci-Oddi gallery in Italian Piacenza in 1997 and was recently found by gardeners in the outer wall of the same gallery.

Now the canvas worth 60 million euros is stored in the city bank, where it was transferred from the Bank of Italy. In the upcoming days there should be an official presentation of the portrait and an official confirmation of its authenticity. For the visitors of the gallery work will be presented around mid-autumn (dates to be specified).

It is very interesting that just before the theft of the picture 23 years ago, it was discovered that under the upper layer of the “Woman's Portrait” another image is hiding – the girl in a hat. This mysterious discovery was accidentally made by an 18-year-old student, comparing photographs of the work from the Italian gallery and painting, which since 1912 were considered lost. Thus, “Portrait of a Lady” is the only known “double work” by Gustav Klimt.
