Private collections- dirty hands…


Mr Klimpt is one of my fave’s… his work and world were inhabited by pollen, pistils, semen, and ovules and this naturalism is so breathtakingly beautiful- more on this later perhaps. 

The renewed frenzy seems to be circulating around the questionable acquistion of pieces in Mr Ronald Lauder’s private stash by those involved with the Holocaust Art Rehabilitation Project, and keeping records open and honest in provenance research and propriety.

There is irony all over the place here-  $135 million anyone?


“Whoever wants to know something about me, must observe my paintings carefully and try to see in them what I am.”
-Gustav Klimpt
