Overview

El beso by Elizabeth Hickey


Vienna in 1886 was a city of elegant cafés, grand opera houses, and a thriving and adventurous artistic community. It is here where the twelve-year-old Emilie meets the controversial libertine and painter Klimt. Hired by her bourgeois father for basic drawing lessons, he introduces Emilie to a subculture of dissolute artists, wanton models, and decadent patrons; following Emilie as she blossoms from a naïve young girl to one of Europe's most exclusive couturiers and Klimt's most beloved model and mistress – the woman who posed for Klimt's masterpiece The Kiss and whose name he uttered with his dying breath.

About the Author

Elizabeth Hickey's fascination with art history paints every page of her atmospheric, sensual debut novel The Painted Kiss -- in which she re-imagines a tempestuous relationship between painter Gustav Klimt and the daughter of a bourgeois businessman. "It was my thesis at Columbia, where it was referred to as 'fictionalized art history' -- not a compliment!" Hickey reveals in our interview.
