1905-1909. 3 cm. Österreichisches Museum, Vienna. qxp 2/7/2011 10:00 AM Page 48 from women who, though appearing open to this contact, actually possess a quiet, independent world quite inaccessible to men? One of Klimt’s amorous liaisons might suggest so. Alma Mahler-Werfel (then Schindler) knew Klimt when she was a young girl of seventeen and claims that he was in love with her. She was not a modest diarist by any means, but there is no reason to doubt the truth of the affair, especially in the light of a later letter of apology written by Klimt to her stepfather, Carl Moll.

The women are frequently depicted masturbating, absorbed in their own sensual pleasures, eyes closed, face slightly averted. How very at ease these women must have felt with Klimt to allow him to portray them in this way! Languorous, feline, and utterly absorbed, they masturbate delicately, fingers poised above the clitoris, still fully or partially clothed, eyes closed in the imaginary heat of a summer’s afternoon. Sometimes Klimt draws in great detail, sometimes it is the overall pose that clearly interests him.

5 x 89 cm. Private collection. 48 Society Portraits The freedom of Klimt’s drawings stands in marked contrast with the portraits of society women he produced between 1903 and around 1913 where the women in his drawings are unconstrained either by clothes or by social conventions. He depicts Fritza Riedler and Adele Bloch-Bauer awash in a sea of pattern and ornament. Their faces stand out, serious and composed, before blocks of pattern or colour strategically placed behind their heads to emphasize their features to the maximum.
