Imagine an art piece that was thought to have a value of 70 million dollars being in a trash bag. Now imagine being a gardener cleaning and finding it yourself. This story was true for a gardener in Italy who, while clearing ivy, found the art piece called “Portrait of a Lady” by Gustav Klimt, a well known Austrian artist. This artwork was his only portrait that he painted twice and it was noticed by an 18 year old girl who suggested that they get an x-ray done on it. He supposedly first painted a woman that he had fallen in love with, but she died out of nowhere. To cope with her death, Klimt then painted over the lady. This was news to everyone and it was decided that the painting would be moved for it to be exhibited. During the exhibition though, on February 22 in 1997, it seemingly disappeared. With the artwork being moved to a new location, and the gallery it was currently in being renovated, it was too busy to have any real suspects of who could have stolen it. Since there was no idea who it could be, they asked a thief that was known for stealing artworks for help or any idea why the frame was left on the roof close to where the exit on the ceiling was. Even he could not help them however. Although it still is not sure who stole the painting, some say it is the thief they asked for help, while others say it was these three men who say they stole it and decided to just leave the painting hidden as a gift back to the city. The painting however was found in December of 2019, which means that it would’ve been in a trash bag for 23 years, and yet was found in good condition. To this day, we still don’t know who stole the painting and we may not know for a while or dare I say, ever.
