Many believe Klimt and Floge were lovers, but the truth is they were merely close friends and relatives. Kilmt’s brother, Ernst, had married Emilie's sister, which made her Klimt’s sister-in-law. During the last 25 years of Klimt’s life, she was very close to Klimt.
Portrait of fashion designer Emilie, a good friend of Klimt's. She was the subject in several of his artworks. We see her wearing a stunning, fashionable blue dress establishing her role as a society woman from the turn of the century in Austria.
Parastone, a renown European collectible figurine manufacturer, has masterfully brought to life this legendary painting of Emilie Floge by Art Nouveau master artist Gustav Klimt, as an intricate 3D statue adaptation in the greatest detail.
Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) was a prominent member of an innovating group of artists called 'Sezession' and is considered to be one of the main pioneers of modern art. Apart from this, his ornamental Jugendstil style evokes an irresistible feeling which is inspired by the 'fin-de-siecle' of 19th century Vienna: elitist, liberal-middle class, decadent, pleasantly-decorative. His work is extremely recognizable due to his monumental style combined with Byzantine-like ornamental art and classical symbolism, created against the background of romanticism which was so characteristic of his time. In Sezession's own words: "Art guides us to an ideal realm, the only place where we will be able to find pure joy, pure happiness and pure love. A choir of angels from paradise. Joy given by divine sparkles. That kiss from the entire world!"
