Birthday Party for Rudolf Leopold

Posted: Thursday, 08-07-2010

One of the world's most prominent art collectors, Rudolf Leopold, died last month in Vienna, Austria.

Known for his encompassing passion for German Expressionism, he amassed a huge display of works by Egon Schiele.

Eventually, he donated the bulk of his collection to the government which created a museum to house it.

Today's AK Files takes a closer look at his collection and the dogged -- often controversial -- perseverance he possessed to assemble it.
