Handpainted Russian Jewelry: " Adele Bloch-Bauer" by Klimt 14K clasp

$298.00

Product Description

This hand-painted lacquered miniature features a radiant recreation of the famous painting of Adele Bloch-Bauer* lit with luminous 24K gold foil. The black onyx pendant (1-3/4" x 3/4") has been painstakingly covered with many layers of oil paint, egg tempura, gold foil, and lacquer to create the dramatic effect and signed in gold by the artist.  The pendant, crowned with a 24K Swarovski crystal, hangs from a hand-knotted strand of Grade AA white pearls and 14K fluted clasp.  18" 

*Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer (also called The Lady in Gold or The Woman in Gold) is a painting by Gustav Klimt, completed between 1903 and 1907. The portrait was commissioned by the sitter's husband, Ferdinand Bloch-Bauer, a Jewish banker and sugar producer. The painting was stolen by the Nazis in 1941 and displayed at the Österreichische Galerie Belvedere. In 2006, following eight years of effort by the Bloch-Bauer heirs, the painting was returned to the family; it was sold the same year for $135 million, at the time a record price for a painting. This compelling story became a hit movie starring Helen Mirren.
