Inaugurated in 2001, the Neue Galerie on New York City’s Museum Mile exhibits the works of early 20th century German and Austrian artists. The upper floor of the museum is dedicated to fine and decorative art, including paintings by Klimt, Kokoschka, Schiele, and Werkstaette. Since 2006, the museum has been home to Klimt’s famous Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer: The Woman in Gold (1907), considered one the artist’s greatest paintings. His subject’s elaborately-patterned gown seems to melt into the golden background, serving as one of the most significant modern masterpieces. The gallery’s collection also includes a selection of sculptures and photographs, highlighting the relationship between the fine and decorative arts in Vienna during the early 1900s.
