1048 5th Avenue

New York City

This panel took place in the main gallery where the world famous Gustav Klimt: "Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer" is exhibited. Described by art critics as a modern "Mona Lisa", this painting's history is a  key to unlock a greater understanding of the enormity of the Nazi theft. Lawrence M. Kaye spoke along with Sharon Flescher who is the Executive Director of the International Foundation for Art Research (IFAR).
