The Girlfriends cannot be visited in any museum, nor does it belong to any private collection, because it was destroyed at the end of World War II, along with other works by Klimt and other artists, in the fire at Immendorf Castle, caused by Nazi troops fleeing from allied advancing. Another example of the chaos caused by intolerance and totalitarianism.
Boundless colorism and sensuality
I wanted to pay double tribute to Klimt's original work: two approaches to the same couple changing roles. I did it freely, changing some important details such as the clothes (the pattern is inspired by the work Danae) or the background (in turn inspired by the exotic mosaics of the Stoclet Palace in Brussels, the work of the muralist Klimt).
The fact of making these compositional and ornamental decisions when carrying out the work does not respond to any censorship intention on my part, not even to break with the inspiration of the original works. It is simply a question of aesthetics and availability of the models. I have the belief that there is also sensuality in the distance that is maintained between the two young girls who watch the other undress alternately. Contact or full nudity is not always necessary to transmit eroticism, sensuality and love.
