Fritza Riedler was one of Gustav Klimt’s early portraits. The wife of the Austrian mechanical engineer Alois Riedler, Fritza embodies the wealth and status of a growing Viennese middle class, in a pale eau de Nil dress and backed by a ‘secular halo’ of stained glass. The Portrait of Fritza Riedler is today held in the Österreichische Galerie Belvedere.
