This documentary series tells the story of intimate and tumultuous love stories in the context of art history. Each of the couples in this collection answer the same questions: is love compatible with creation? Can artists reveal themselves through romantic passion? Does love bring a renewed energy to art?
Kilmt was a symbolist painter, an alchemist who turned his color palette into gold, who reinterpreted patterns and eroticized his models. Flöge was one of the greats in early 20th century fashion design. Under the painter's brushes, the fashion artist became an iconic figure in glowing colors. In Vienna, the two artists would shake up conventions and imagine an alliance stronger than the bonds of marriage.
