    Jul 14, 1862 - Feb 6, 1918
  • Portrait of Emile Floge - Gustav Klimt was an Austrian Symbolist painter and one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Secession movement. His major works include paintings, murals, sketches, and other art objects. Klimt's primary subject was the female body, and his works are marked by a frank eroticism - nowhere is this more apparent than in his numerous drawings in pencil.

    Emilie Floge (1874-1952) was Klimt's lifelong companion, mistress and one of his principal heirs. She was born into the family of Hermann Floge, a prosperous pipe manufacturer. It is uncertain when she first met Klimt, but his first portrait of her dates to 1891. She would appear in many of his paintings as both subject and model. That same year Emilie's elder sister Helene married Klimt's younger brother, Ernst.

    In 1895, Emilie's eldest sister Pauline Floge opened a school for dressmakers, in which Emilie worked as well. In 1899, the Floge sisters win a dressmaking contest and are commissioned to sew a cambric dress for an exhibition.In 1903, the Floge sisters opened their fashion boutique in Vienna.

    After Klimt's death in 1918, Emilie inherited half of his belongings, the other half passing to his family.

    In 1938, after the German Anschluss with Austria, the Floge sisters had to close their boutique. Emilie died in 1952, at the age of 78.

Gustav KlimtGustav Klimt was born in Baumgarten, near Vienna, Austria. He was educated at the Vienna Kunstgewerbe Art School in the years 1879-1883. Klimt was also an honorary member of the Universities of Munich and Vienna. His major works include paintings, murals, sketches and other art objects, many of which are on display in the Vienna Secession gallery. His work is distinguished by an elegant use of gold backgrounds and mosaic patterns. This can be seen in Judith I (1901), and in The Kiss (1907). Art historians note an eclectic range of influences contributing to Klimt's distinct style, including Egyptian, Minoan, Classical Greek, and Byzantine inspirations. Klimt was also inspired by engravings of Albrecht Dürer, late medieval European painting, and Japanese Ukiyo-e. Klimt was one of the founding members of the Wiener Sezession (Vienna Secession) and of the periodical Ver Sacrum. He left the movement in 1908. He died in Vienna of pneumonia and was interred at the Hietzing Cemetery, Vienna.
