News from Vienna that an early study by Gustav Klimt has been donated to the city's Leopold Museum. The work had appeared last week at the Dorotheum auction house where it achieved €475,064 (inc. commission) over its €190k - €300k estimate. It was purchased by a private family who donated the work to the museum. The study relates to a fresco of The Altar of Dionysus which the artist completed in Vienna's Burgtheater.
