In 1997, Egon Schiele's Portrait of Wally was found
hanging on the walls of New York City's Museum of
Modern Art. Valerie "Wally" Neuzil, was a 17-year-
old girl the Austrian artist met in 1911 and who
became his frequent muse. How the painting got to
the museum, and the aftermath of its acquisition, is
nothing less than astonishing.
Portrait of Wally is a compelling true story that involves
a brilliant work of art, the U.S. government, art aficio-
nados and collectors around the world, a $19 million
settlement, and a single, determined family.
