As the world's most expensive painting was carefully uncrated in New York.The new owner waited to see the work that literally2 cost him a fortune.

I just absolutely adore it.

Gustav Klimt's gilded3 masterpiece,the portrait of Adele,cost Ronald Lauder a record-breaking 135 million dollars. Did you hold your breath for a moment, saying, you know, I don't know if I can do this? Sometimes ,now I look back and say ‘how did I do it’.Er,but at the moment when it was a question of buying it, it took me about 2 seconds to say "Yes."

In his first television interview since buying the work, Lauder said today it would become the star of his museum. The Neue Galerie, a lifelong collector. Each piece, I remember when I got it...

He's heir to the Estée Lauder cosmetics4 fortune and worth an estimated 2.7 billion dollars. But I have to imagine that even for you; this is a lot of money. Er,this was not a question of money, This was a question of something so special.This piece is priceless.

Klimt painted Adele Bloch-Bauer in 1907, the daughter of a Jewish sugar magnate. She was reported to be the artist's lover. But in 1938, when the Nazis5 invaded Austria, the painting was looted. After an epic6 legal battle, Adele's portrait was finally returned to her heirs in Los Angeles earlier this year. They then decided7 to sell it.

On the final leg of its incredible journey, the gold portrait was brought from Los Angeles in an unmarked armored truck shadowed by 2 security cars. They traveled non-stop for 3 days and nights across the country to bring the world's most expensive painting here to New York.

Maria Altmann, Adele's 90-year-old niece, came to see her aunt's portrait today and said the painting. "He's found its home here. It makes us all very happy. “Installed behind bullet-proof glass, the shimmering8 Adele will soon be on public display. The painting's price tag is now as rich as its history.
