The Jewish Heritage Museum Presents Gustav Klimt: The Golden Art Noveau

 The Jewish Heritage Museum of Monmouth County is pleased to welcome back Professor Maurice Mahler as part of its ongoing “Jewish Artists” lecture series.  Mahler will present a film and discuss the life and work of Gustav Klimt, Gustav Klimt: The Golden Art Noveau. The program is scheduled for Wednesday, November 11, 2015, at 1 PM. Admission is $8 members, $10 non-members. 
Klimt was born in 1862 in Vienna, Austria. His father’s influence as a goldsmith may have contributed to Klimt’s liberal use of gold in paintings. Klimt's painting “Portrait of Adele Bloch Bauer I” (1907) was featured in the recent movie, Women in Gold.  It is the true story of Maria Altmann (played by Helen Mirren) who fought the Austrian government for decades to reclaim the painting of her aunt that was stolen by the Nazis during World War II. The painting is on display at the Neue Galerie in New York City.

Professor Mahler teaches at the Rutgers University Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI-RU), a non-credited program for individuals of 50 years of age and older. He is a retired advertising executive, and past instructor at the School for Visual Arts in New York City.
