The Wolford share – since its invalidation in June 2013 a historic security and much sought-after collectible.
The depiction on the share of fresco painting, which Gustav Klimt created for the National Art Museum in Vienna, does justice to the first traded securities in their role as “documents of value”, not only with respect to contents but in formal terms. The fresco is dedicated to the Greek and Egyptian protective goddess of the fire arts, who attributes are renewal, fantasy, courage and independence – values which Wolford also cherishes.
