Ambassador of Austria Hans Peter Manz was at the Arts Club of Washington May 23 as Anne Marie O’Connor received the seventh annual Marfield Prize, National Award for Arts Writing for "The Lady in Gold: The Extraordinary Tale of Gustav’s Klimt’s Masterpiece, Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer." The book chronicles the twisted tale of an emblematic portrait of a Jewish salon hostess stolen by the Nazis and the subject of eventual Supreme Court litigation. On a lighter note, dinner following the presentation was thanks to Arts Club Chef Ken Kievit.
