Maria Altmann was an Austrian-American Jewish refugee from Austria, who fled her home country after it was occupied by the Nazis. She is noted for her ultimately successful legal campaign to reclaim from the Government of Austria five family-owned paintings by the artist Gustav Klimt which were stolen by the Nazis during World War II.

Altmann is the central figure in the 2015 film Woman in Gold where she is portrayed by Helen Mirren and Tatiana Maslany
