Point of View #9Gustav Klimt "Portrait of a Lady with a Lilac Scarf”
Point of View # 9 focuses on Gustav Klimt’s “Portrait of a Lady with a Lilac Scarf”. This portrait was recently bequeathed to the Kunsthistorisches Museum. It had been in the same family for almost a century and was never exhibited in public; until now, even art historians knew only a black-and-white photograph of the composition.
“Points of View” is a series of exhibitions in the Picture Gallery, showcasing an exceptional, unusual or little-known painting that, for lack of hanging space, is rarely displayed in the permanent collection, or that has been the object of recent research, which allows us to see it in a new light.
