Art Happenings Around New Mexico

ARTsmart New Mexico presents BEHIND THE WOMAN IN GOLD featuring Peter Altmann 5:00 PM Thursday, June 8 at the Lensic

Peter, son of Maria Altmann, who famously took on the Austrian government to regain Klimt's famous painting that was stolen from her family during WWII, will be speaking on the difference between the Hollywood version, the 2015 film "Woman in Gold" and the reality for his family during the decades-long battle. 

Peter will discuss the gold portrait of his Great Aunt, Adele, and its epic journey from creation, Nazi capture, his mother’s battle to regain, and the comparison to the Hollywood movie starring Helen Mirren. There will be plenty of time for Q&A so come prepared with        questions!

As a fundraiser, proceeds from ticket sales and purchases support ARTsmart New Mexico, a 501c3 nonprofit that ensures that schoolchildren have the opportunity to explore, experience, and engage in the visual arts, which are a critical component of every child’s education
