史上最贵名画1.35亿美元成交

2006-06-20 11:08:30 CRIENGLISH.comNEW YORK (AFP) – New York cosmetics tycoon Ronald Lauder paid a world record art price for a gold-encrusted portrait, “Adele Bloch-Bauer 1″, by Gustav Klimt, according to a lawyer for the seller of the 1907 work.

According to The New York Times, Lauder paid 135 million dollars for the portrait of the wife of a Jewish sugar industrialist that had for decades been at the centre of a custody battle after being stolen by the Nazis.

Steven Thomas, a lawyer for Maria Altmann, a niece of Bloch-Bauer, would not give the price, citing a confidentiality agreement. But he said it was “the most valuable painting ever sold".

The previous record price for a painting was 104.1 million dollars for Pablo Picasso’s(毕加索)1905 “Boy with a Pipe" in a 2004 auction.

Lauder purchased Klimt portrait for his New York art gallery Neue Galerie New York, which focuses on German and Austrian decorative arts.

“This is a once-in-a-lifetime acquisition, and a defining moment for the Neue Galerie," said Lauder in a statement.

“With this dazzling painting, Klimt created one of his greatest works of art. We are overjoyed to be able to give Adele Bloch-Bauer a permanent home at the Neue Galerie."

Renee Price, director of Neue Galerie New York, said: “This painting is as important to the Neue Galerie as the Mona Lisa is to the Louvre."
