'Woman in Gold'

Hosted by

A new film comes out next week about art stolen by Nazis, and one woman’s nearly decade-long fight to retrieve it from the Austrian government. Woman in Gold tells the story of Maria Altmann, the niece of Adele Bloch-Bauer and subject of one of Gustav Klimt’s most famous works. It’s a stunning painting, with Adele’s dark hair and serene face atop a waterfall of gold. And it turns out, the historical drama over the work is still playing out in the courts. We speak with a guest who’s working on recovering stolen art.
