Gustav Klimt's Portrait of a Lady is more than just a gorgeous oil on canvas painting from 1916-17. Its unusual expressionistic style gives the female figure a lively presence that's hard to ignore. And while the painting enjoys a proud place in the Galleria Ricci-Oddi's collection, it also has a remarkable history. For example, did you know that it was painted over another portrait before taking its present form? And in 1997, just before a special exhibition, the painting was stolen from the gallery during renovations. For 23 years, its whereabouts remained unknown, until a discovery in December 2019. Someone found a bag containing what looked to be the missing masterpiece. But here's the real mystery: where was this bag all this time? The answer may lie in tests currently being carried out to confirm whether the painting remained hidden behind a gallery wall since its theft.
