We look at the relationship between Klimt and Flöge and see how, in a process of co-creation, they became standard-bearers of the new liberated man and woman, the alternative king and queen of fashionable Vienna Secession
Camille Claudel and Auguste Rodin worked side by side in the studio and their sculptures clearly show mutual influence and synchronicity, announcing a new kind of creative exchange within an artistic relationship.
In 1915, Sophie Taeuber met Jean Arp at his exhibition. From then on, the two immediately began collaborating and creating together, a creative relationship that would last for almost three decades.
