Protection for the Most Expensive Painting
»Adele Bloch-Bauer« from Klimt behind Amiran® anti-reflective glass
When U.S. entrepreneur Ronald Lauder paid 135 million Dollars for the world-famous portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer, painted by Austrian painter Gustav Klimt at his creative peak in 1907, this became the highest sum ever paid for a painting. The mainly gold masterpiece can look back on a turbulent history. Today, it hangs safely behind Amiran® inside the Neue Galerie in New York. This special anti-reflective glass from schott protects »Golden Adele« from ultraviolet light and glass breakage and offers a perfect view of the Art Nouveau masterpiece.
