Join us for a special Art Film Friday in conjunction with our Muscarelle Explorations: Art Repatriation lecture series! Woman in Gold is the remarkable true story of one woman’s voyage to reclaim her heritage and seek justice for what happened to her family. Sixty years after she fled Vienna during World War II, an elderly Jewish woman, Maria Altmann, starts her journey to retrieve family possessions seized by the Nazis, among them Klimt’s famous painting Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I (also known as The Woman in Gold).
This series of programs is presented in cooperation with the following: William & Mary Art and Cultural Heritage Law Society; Cultural Heritage Partners, a law firm dedicated exclusively to serving cultural heritage clients; and the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.
Run time: 109 minutes; a brief introduction by the Student Organizers will precede the screening.
Free and open to the public.
