Gustav & Emilie

July 10, 2020

I really like this photo of Gustav Klimt boating with his wife, Emilie Flöge. Emile’s sister, Helene was married to Gustav’s brother Ernst. Klimt died from a stroke in 1918. I read that his last words were, “Get Emilie.” She inherited half of Klimt’s estate, and the the other went to the artist’s family. I love her hair in this image, and the enormous sleeves on her caftan. And the way she is looking straight at the camera, while Klimt looks ahead.
