Adele Bloch-Bauer (1881–1925) was a refined art-loving Viennese salon lady, a patron and close friend of Gustav Klimt.

She became the only model who was painted twice by Klimt, first with Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I (1907) and subsequently with Adele Bloch-Bauer II, in 1912.

Adele Bloch-Bauer (* 9. August 1881 in Wien; † 24. Januar 1925 ebenda, gebürtig Adele Bauer) war eine österreichische Unternehmergattin und wurde vor allem durch das 1907 entstandene Gemälde Adele Bloch-Bauer I („Goldene Adele“) von Gustav Klimt, eines der bedeutendsten Werke des Wiener Jugendstils (Fin de siècle), bekannt.
