Adele Bloch-Bauer

  • Lauder paid most for Klimt work

    To the Editor: If I am not mistaken, I believe that the record paid for a Klimpt painting is over $100 million by Ambassador Lauder. David Schimel Great Neck, N.Y. Editor’s note: Mr. Schimel is correct. Ronald Lauder in June 2006 reportedly paid $135 million for the 1907 Klimt work "Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I." More ▸
