Summary "Portrait of Wally traces the history of Egon Schiele's celebrated painting of his mistress, Walburga ('Wally') Neuzil -- from Schiele's gesture of affection toward his young lover, to the theft of the painting from Lea Bondi, a Jewish art dealer fleeing Vienna for her life during World War II, to the to the post-war confusion and subterfuge that evoke The Third Man. The twisting story grows even more complicated when "Wally" resurfaces on the walls of the Museum of Modern Art in 1997, igniting a landmark battle that pits the Manhattan District Attorney, the United States Government and Lea Bondi's heirs against MoMA and a major Austrian museum. The "Wally" case has brought the history of Nazi art loot into the open, showing that institutions can be held accountable for holding art stolen during the Holocaust.'--Container.
