Gustav Klimt
Miss Emilie Floege, 1902, oil on canvas, 178 x 80cm, Historical Museum of the City of Vienna, Austria. 
Emilie Floege was a talented proprietor of a Viennese fashion salon. Klimt began a long-lasting, though apparently open,  relationship with her in 1899. The names of the models and other women in his life do not always  survive, partly because Flöge burnt much of Klimt’s correspondence after  his death from a stroke in 1918.
