Photographs

Nearly 250 photographs, some never before published, offer an intimate glimpse into one of the art world’s most famous love affairs.

Emilie Flöge was only a teenager when she met the painter Gustav Klimt, but their friendship soon evolved into a complex and loving relationship that lasted the rest of their lives. Alfred Weidinger, an acclaimed expert on Klimt and his contemporaries, has compiled an exhaustive collection of photographs relating to the artist and his designer muse. While Klimt took many of these shots, other photographers include Carl Schuster, Victor von Spitzer, Hugo Henneberg, Pauline Kruger Hamilton, Anton Josef Trcka (Antios), and unknown individuals who had access to the couple’s private lives. Presented chronologically, they offer insight into the creatively charged world that Klimt and Flöge inhabited — a world they influenced with their enormous talent and passions.
