Sometimes you love someone's work but don't know the creator, today I found Magnhild Kennedy's gallery. I have had the image above saved for years, not really thinking about it, and assuming it was a one-off creation, but no Magnhild's work is both incredible and prolific, enjoy it!

Emilie Flöge (1874-1955), was a pioneering Austrian designer, whose work is often overshadowed by or credited to her life companion, the painter Gustave Klimt.
Emilie was Gustave's love and muse, though they were never married.
Emilie remained true to Klimt throughout his life and after his death maintaining a "Klimt room" in the salon premises after the Nazi Anschluss in 1938 forced its closure, Here she kept his easel and his massive cupboard housing his collection of ornamental gowns, his caftan like painter's smocks, and several hundred of his drawings.
