This story was absolutely enlightening! I learned so much about Vienna before both world wars. The descriptions of the families, of different religions and how Hitler's annexation of Austria and why so many Jewish families were tragically trapped and murdered. I thought that the story of Klimt's relationships with the lady in gold and the subjects of other of his paintings was an added bonus. So much info very well researched and presented.
I'm a serious fan of PBS and of Antiques Roadshow in particular. I've always been curious about the appraisers and what happens when the paintings are sold afterwards. Philip Mould deftly writes about that and about how rare and unknown works of art are discovered and authenticated. I liked that each chapter deals with a different painting and the history of the painting. The narration is very well done. I haven't enjoyed a story like this in a while.
