In 1939, Egon Schiele's celebrated painting "Portrait of Wally" (1912), a beguiling portrait of the Austrian artist's red-haired mistress Walburga ('Wally') Neuzil, was seized by a Nazi from Lea Bondi, a Viennese gallery owner. Nearly sixty years later, the painting surfaced on the walls of the Museum of Modern Art, triggering a historic court case that pitted the Manhattan District Attorney, the United States Government and the heirs of Lea Bondi against a major Austrian Museum and MoMA.
