DARIEN, Conn. — Larissa Bailiff will discuss the portrait of Adele Block-Bauer II by Gustav Klimt at Darien Library on May 5 at 7 p.m.
Klimt's painting was stolen by the Nazis in 1938 and was returned to the Bloch-Bauer heirs in 2006 following years of legal negotiations.
Bailiff is the coordinator for the Center for Curatorial Leadership’s new Mellon-funded Seminar in Curatorial Practice and a specialist in French art and culture of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
She is a former associate educator at the Museum of Modern Art and still gives tours and teaches courses for the museum.
