Picture Tree International


ALMA AND OSKAR explores the amour fou between Alma Mahler and the artist Oskar Kokoschka and is a testament to the power and perils of their passion. Considered one of the greatest expressionist artists of the 20th century, Kokoschka created his most famous works with Alma as his model and muse but could not keep her. As Society Grand Dame and Alma Mahler, had already buried her first husband, composer Gustav Mahler, and had an on-and-off-again relationship with architect Walter Gropius while she got to know Kokoshka. A talented composer in her own right, Alma Mahler was a vibrant and strong willed society figure who chose her own path in a world dominated by men.
