Gustav Klimt’s sumptuously romantic masterpiece 1916-7 Bildnis einer Frau (Portrait of a Lady), bought by the famous Italian art patron Guiseppe Ricci Oddi eight years after it was completed, in 1925, and still owned by the Piacenza Galleria di Moderna Ricci Oddi that he founded, has just been loaned out to the Museo di Roma in the Palazzo Braschi for their massive exploration of the Vienna Secession in the exhibition entitled Klimt: The Secession and Italy.
