Photo (by Hans Boehler) of Gustav Klimt and Emilie Flöge (1909).
So, Valentine's Day is coming up in the next few weeks, and that makes me think of the beautiful paintings of Gustav Klimt. His stuff just exudes romance and I love how mysterious his actual love life is/was in pretty much every publication about him. He had a whole lot of illegitimate children, he loved a whole lotta women, yet it isn't clear at all in anything what exactly his relationship was with Emilie Flöge. The mystery makes their story so open to the imagination - in all the paintings or photographs, it appears that there was definitely a special kind of love, but was she his best friend or his lover? I love not knowing, but at the same time wish that one day we found out that she was indeed the love of his life, his best friend, and most significant companion.... ahhhhh, romance.... I also love this photo of Klimt and his cat. I could not find out who took this, so if you know, shoot me a message so I can credit!
