US cosmetics mogul pays record art price for Klimt portrait

2006-07-02 11:59

  世界最贵画像1.35亿美元成交

  New York cosmetics(化妆品)tycoon Ronald Lauder paid a world record art price for a gold-encrusted(镀金的)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(实业家)that had for decades been at the centre of a custody(保管、监护)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(机密性)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(装饰的)arts.

  "This is a once-in-a-lifetime(一生仅一次的)acquisition(获得物), and a defining moment(定位时刻)for the Neue Galerie," said Lauder in a statement.

  "With this dazzling(耀眼的)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."

  Note:

  迄今为止最贵的一幅画以1.35亿美元的高价成交,这幅画是犹太糖果大亨妻子的肖像画,上面镀了一层黄金。之前最贵的画是毕加索的《拿烟斗的男孩》,以1.04亿美元拍卖。
