Lady in Gold

The events surrounding art stolen during WWII continues to invade today’s news and movies. The historical setting is enormously fascinating. Sculptured from narrative wonders of old Vienna, we see how culture, hypocrisy and lust collided to make a sumptuous decadent offering for many. Individuals like Adele loch-Bauer were rich, privileged and often perverse. The art salons of the period were dominated by these rare individuals such as the lustful Gustav Klimt, skilled in painting and the art of seduction. Adele’s portrait is emblematic of this era & current restitution efforts, often clouded by secrecy, money & power.

Frank Lloyd Wright

Frank Lloyd Wright was an American architect, interior designer, writer and educator, who designed more than 1,000 structures, 532 of which were completed. Wright believed in designing structures that were in harmony with humanity and its environment, a philosophy he called organic architecture. This philosophy was best exemplified by Fallingwater (1935), which has been called "the best all-time work of American architecture". Wright was a leader of the Prairie School movement of architecture and developed the concept of the Usonian home, his unique vision for urban planning in the United States. His creative period spanned more than 70 years.
