Portrait of a Portrait

January 20, 2002

I want to commend you for the article about the portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer ("Whose Art Is It Anyway?" by Anne-Marie O'Connor, Dec. 16). I was fascinated to read about the political climate during World War II, when the Nazis stole precious jewelry and paintings from the homes of Jewish families. I have been to Maria Bloch-Bauer Altmann's home many times because I buy my dresses and suits from her. I have always admired the copy of the famous painting of her aunt and heard about Altmann's attempts to get it back. I hope that the article will help her in her legal case.
