Bidding a Fond Farewell
Today is the last day to see Egon Schiele’s “Portrait of Wally,” here at the Museum of Jewish Heritage in New York. After tonight at 8 p.m., the famous painting will be sent to Vienna where it will reside at the Leopold Museum. If you are curious about Wally’s background, there will be a fascinating panel discussion tonight featuring some art restitution experts who will trace the painting’s past and put it into historical context.
