Behind the Woman in Gold
featuring Peter Altmann
5:00pm Thursday, June 8th, at the Lensic
Join us as we take a look behind the Woman in Gold! Peter Altmann, son of Maria Altmann, (the niece of Adele, the “Woman in Gold” in Klimt’s famous painting) who took on the Austrian government to recover the artwork that was stolen during WWII, will speak along with a special showing of the film at the historic Lensic Performing Arts Center.
If you’ve never seen Woman In Gold (2015) or are already a fan of the film you will enjoy hearing Peter Altmann’s story as an Altmann family member. Peter will discuss the gold portrait of his Great Aunt, Adele, and its epic journey from creation, Nazi capture, his mother’s battle to regain, and the comparison to the Hollywood movie starring Helen Mirren. There will be plenty of time for Q&A so come prepared with questions!
