Symbol of Austria Woman in Gold. Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer by Gustav Klimt

Until recently, the “Woman in Gold“, a masterpiece of 135 million dollars, was called “Vienna Mona Lisa” or the symbol of Austria, and the crowds stared at it in the Vienna gallery, only to see a beautiful picture, shimmering gold with their own eyes. This is the story of a woman – a state ideal, whose family was humiliated and practically destroyed. By the way, the name “woman in gold” appeared much later. Gustav Klimt painted portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer in 1907, at the time she was 26 years old. The portrait was commissioned by her husband, “sugar king” of Europe, Ferdinand Bauer. Their union was approved by the parents on both sides, because both spouses were from the elite families of the Vienna Jewish community.

Million Scarlet Roses from Niko Pirosmani. Georgian artist Niko Pirosmani (5 May 1862 – April 9, 1918) was a primitivist, one of those artists about whom people far from understanding art, say: “I would have painted not worse than that”.

Behind the apparent naivete of painted on canvas animals and holiday feasts are hidden deep feelings – pain through the joy and pleasure through pain. And it becomes more than obvious if you know a little about the life of Niko Pirosmani.
