Oskar Kokoschka. An artist and dramatist. He is 33. His own place in art he identified with a single cocky smear: I walk in the forefront of expressionism. Kokoschka wrote in his diary: Klimt invited Alma Mahler to my exhibition. A year passed after the death of her husband - director of the Vienna Opera Gustav Mahler. Her mourning is over. She needs a man.
Her names: Alma Schindler - the muse of the Four Arts: in music she's Alma Mahler, in literature - Alma Werfel, in architecture - Alma Groppius. Kokoschka painted a portrait of her and fell in love. Their romance lasted for three years. It was a furious love duel without losers and winners.
Oskar: The sex and the pain are major themes in the arts. An Art - is the freedom from causal chain law. A triumph of the subjective over the objective. An Art is a comprehension of some new fairy existence. An Art - is embracing fullness of the miracle and love.
Alma: I got pregnant by Oscar. He wanted to marry me. I put a condition: if he'll paint a masterpiece, I'll marry him. But I fear that can grow inside me. I was afraid that the child will be as crazy as his father. I had an abortion. We have never seen more. Oscar ordered the doll in human growth in the image and likeness of Alma. He bought the clothes and underwear for the doll. He even hired a maid for her. On sunny days Kokoschka rode in a carriage with a 'silent woman.' Madness knows no borders. Kokoschka made a party in a male company, Kokoschka doused his doll with a wine, and then cut off her head with a saber.
A neighbor saw the 'execution' and called the police. The cops found just a doll without a head.
