RECOMMENDED: More coverage of Gustav Klimt's 150th anniversary

As home to Gustav Klimt’s Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I—purchased by the museum in 2006 for $135 million, the highest price ever paid for a painting by any artist at the time—it’s only fitting that Neue Galerie is planning a big party for the artist’s sesquicentennial. The museum is breaking out its superb Klimt holdings, including the aforementioned masterwork. And what birthday would be complete without the sweet stuff? The gallery’s Café Sabarsky is offering a special gilded chocolate-and-hazelnut Klimt cake for the run of the show: a sugar rush to complement the artist’s delirious style.
