Artists and their muses — such fabled relationships, so fraught with excitement, creativity, and yes… scandal. Let’s meet some of the enchanting, free-spirited, tortured women and men that inspired great artists to do great works of art. A warning: Some of our muses are more bohemian than others, so this one’s not for the sensitive types. Another warning: Some are more tragic than others, so break out the tissues now. From Gala to Eddie to Kiki to La Cicciolina, here come the muses, their triumphs and pitfalls in tow.
Ilona Staller a.k.a. La Cicciolina
By the time Jeff Koons married Hungarian-born Italian blond bombshell “La Ciccolina”(“Cuddles”), she had achieved notoriety as both a hardcore porn actress and a member of parliament, simultaneously. She was the first to bare her breasts on Italian TV, a member of Italy’s first Green Party, then a Libertarian, then a founding member of the “Party of Love” — protesting nuclear power, championing human rights, and offering to sleep with Saddam Hussein in exchange for peace. Then, there was more hardcore porn, that is, Jeff Koons’ Made In Heavenproject — explicit XXX painting and sculptures of the couples’ antics, shocking the 1990 Venice Biennale. They married in 1991. After the marriage soured, Staller took off to Italy with their 2-year-old son Ludwig Maximillian, and a grim custody battle lead to the founding of the Koons Family Institute on International Law and Policy. Scandalous all around!
