Hand-blown large 5 1/2 ” glass Christmas ornament of the only woman that has been painted twice by Gustav Klimt. Klimt was a leader of Austria’s secessionist movement whose work would come to define Vienna’s Art Nouveau. Adele Bauer Bloch and her husband were among Klimt major patrons and the walls of their house were decorated with nine of his paintings. Against spectacular unique background quintessential Klimt, floral on the lower part of the painting and oriental on the top the fragile Adele in a light blue dress with wide brim black and long black scarf hat towers up. A glorious ornament, quite different in feel to the first golden Adele Bauer Bloch.
