Adele Bloch-Bauer

Gustav Klimt is my favorite favorite artist. I also have a thing for tacky, trashy, kitsch, which is maybe why I get the Barbie Collector Catalogue? Anyways, there is a new designer Barbie series of Museum Barbies inspired by famous paintings including one of Adele Bloch-Bauer by Klimt. She was his famous model and possibly lover that did not become so infamous until World War II when the famous painting, "Adele Bloch-Bauer I" became Nazi war loot. Anyways I would never buy the Barbie, as I do not want curio cabinets of collectibles in my house, but I do love it.
