Artists Oscar Kokoschka Invented A Love Doll

  • Oscar Kokoschka (1886-1980) is one of the greatest artists of the 20th century. He was born in Austria in 1886. When he was young, he fell in love with Alma Mahler, a widow much older than him. Three years later, Alma decided to end the relationship. The shocked Kokoschka decided to make a doll exactly like Alma to alleviate his miss for Alma. After the love doll was made, Kokoschka even commissioned Alma’s private tailor to make clothes for it. After the love doll was made, Kokoschka displayed the doll in public. He took the love doll in a carriage and went to the opera together, basically imitating the days before he broke up with Alma. Someone asked Kokoschka if he had a sexual relationship with the doll, but Kokoschka never answered. But Kokoschka said, “Alma will have an abortion against his will, and the love doll will always remain silent and obedient.”

    Kokoschka’s love dolls have inspired and inspired many people, including the father of modern sex dolls-German surrealist Hans Bellmer (1902-1975).
