NPR on Recovering Artistic Treasures Stolen by the Nazis

Adelebloch

Last week, NPR did a short segment on the history of Gustav Klimt's masterpiece, the Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer.  The painting was commissioned by Ms. Bloch-Bauer in 1903 and then removed from the family home by a Nazi officer, who delivered the painting to the national gallery in Vienna.  The NPR details the legal battle between Bloch-Bauer's niece and the museum for ownership of the painting.  You can listen here.
