Gustav Klimt, an Austrian painter, one of the most renowned representative of the Art Nouveau style, is a 120-year-old, projected exhibition of the first digital visual arts center at the L’Atelier des Lumieres in the French capital.
The 3300-square-foot digital exhibition hall features 120 projectors projecting tiles, ceilings, and walls by Klimt’s works with spatial sound reinforcement. The unique experience and spectacle are provided by unique multimedia devices.
The paintings of Klimt (1862-1918) are nowadays being replaced by a large amount of money. In November 2003, the “Landhaus am Attersee” image was sold for $ 29,128,000. In 2006, Ronald Lauder, the son of the Estée Lauder, the founder of the cosmetics empire, who had been photographed in his Manhattan gallery in Neue Galerie, Germany and Austria, produced $ 135 million for “Adele Bloch-Bauer I”. Much of the money was donated to the heirs for charitable purposes.
The picture taken in 1907 depicts Adele Bloch-Bauer, a Viennese Jewish sugar-making wife, one of the pioneers of the painter’s work and Viennese secession. In the world-famous painting, the black-haired Adele sits in front of a gold background with a distinctive Art Nouveau gold dress.
The appreciation of the images led to serious litigation as many pictures were previously owned by Austrian Jewish families – not once the clients or patrons – which the Nazis had seized. In recent years, several legitimate heirs have received this painting. In 2006, the Austro-State Maria Altman returned to the 89-year-old American citizen, the five legitimate hereditary representatives, of the world-famous portrayal of Adele Bloch-Bauer II, The Apple Tree, Beech Tree, Houses in Attersee’s Unterach.
Adele Bloch Bauer took the pictures in his will to get them into Austrian museums after their husband died. Bloch Bauer, however, escaped from the Nazis to Switzerland and the paintings were confiscated by the Nazis after they came to power. In his craftsman’s will, Klimt left his family unlike his wife. The painting, Adele Bloch-Bauer II, was later owned by Oprah Winfrey and was for a time published in the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Last year, Gustav Klimt’s portrayal of $ 150 million was bought by a non-named Chinese buyer.
