Artists & Love: Emilie Flöge and Gustav Klimt

Artists & Love: Emilie Flöge and Gustav Klimt

From Georgia O’Keeffe and Alfred Stieglitz to Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, ARTISTS & LOVE delves into the tumultuous romantic and creative partnerships that shaped some of the towering figures of modern art.

Klimt was a symbolist painter, an alchemist who turned his color palette into gold, who reinterpreted patterns and eroticized his models. Flöge was one of the greats in early 20th century fashion design. Under the painter's brushes, the fashion artist became an iconic figure in glowing colors. In Vienna, the two artists would shake up conventions and imagine an alliance stronger than the bonds of marriage.
