Klimt Painting: Auction House im Kinsky Presents Rediscovered Portrait of a Young Female

Invitation to Press Conference

VIENNA, Jan. 22, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — The Viennese auction house im Kinsky will present a rediscovered masterpiece of Austrian Modernism in an exclusive auction in April 2024.

The painting from the late creative period of Gustav Klimt, the leading protagonist of fin-de-siècle Viennese modernism, was previously considered lost; its rediscovery is a worldwide sensation.

The auction house im Kinsky in Vienna is delighted to present this painting for the first time at a press conference—a work unrivaled in rarity, artistic significance, and value that has not been available on the art market in Central Europe for decades.

The press conference will take place on Thursday, January 25, 2024, at 10:00 a.m. at the Stadtpalais Liechtenstein, Bankgasse 1, 1010 Vienna.
