Staud's Art Nouveau Collection: Wien Museum

More about the Wien Museum

No 36: Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) "Emilie Flöge"
Emilie Flöge (1874-1952), the daughter of a meerschaum pipe manufacturer and seamstress by trade, was one of the luminous personalities of the fin de siècle period. With her sister Helene she worked at a fashion salon designed by the Art Nouveau artist Josef Hoffman, where designs by artists of the Wiener Werkstätte were created along with such items as the wide, corset-free "reform dresses" propagated by the contemporary feminist movement. At its peak, up to 80 seamstresses worked for the salon.
Flöge became famous as the life companion of Gustav Klimt, who immortalized her in many of his paintings. Some even claim that the lovers in Klimt's famous painting "The Kiss" depict the artist with his companion. The Flöge portrait in the Wien Museum was created in 1902. The Wien Museum's collection also includes other important works by Gustav Klimt, such as "Pallas Athene" and his early work "Interior View of the Burgtheater" (1887).
