Top 5 Couples in Art History
The maker of this painting holds one half of the top spot.
These are not the best lovey-dovey partnerships in visual art history. That would be lame.
Instead, kudos were earned for partnerships wrought with infidelities and general messed-up-ness. Because how else does one make art if not from a place of titanic heartbreak and crushing depression?
(Kidding. Kind of.)

5. Alfred Stieglitz and Georgia O'Keefe
Imagine you're Emmy Obermeyer, wife of Stieglitz, a man who transformed photography from a science to an art, and you walk into your home to find the scumbag photographing a nude O'Keefe. Would you fall for that ol' "Oh, honey, this is art so don't worry your pretty little head none" line?
Yeah, screw that, especially because Stieglitz had discreetly flown O'Keefe from her home in Texas to New York City in the name of "art." Low blow, photo dude.
Though Stieglitz and O'Keefe would later marry, they rarely lived in the same time zone; the photographer fancied staying in New York while the painter posted up in New Mexico.
Stieglitz, 23 years O'Keefe's senior, died in 1946 from a fatal stroke. O'Keefe's prolific art career continued until her passing in 1986 at the age of 98.Next Page
